The newest Findlay police officer walked out of a building and stopped to sniff a cigarette butt on the ground.
The officer, a 15-month-old German Shepherd named Deke, has officially been with the force since May.
But a diagnosis of heartworm delayed Deke’s participation on the force. He was announced as a new member last week.
Deke is one of two dogs on the Findlay Police Department.
