FORT WAYNE — The Allen County Sheriff’s Department is looking for a new recruit to join the force.
But not just any recruit.
The department announced Tuesday that it is in need of a German shepherd to join the ranks of its K-9 unit and is asking the public for a qualified dog.
The dog should be between 1 and 3 1/2 years old, must pass a physical and have a good temperament, according to the department.
All candidates will be screened by a veterinarian and the department’s master K-9 trainer.
Anyone with a dog meeting the requirements and willing to donate the animal should call master K-9 trainer Robert Compton at 449-4597.
