FCSO gets a new four-legged deputy and he is currently without a name. After the passing of K-9 Keanu, in February of this year, FCSO located a K-9 candidate who ended up being the perfect fit for Deputy Robin Towns.

FCSO is currently asking the public to assist with name the four-legged deputy. He is a Belgian Malinois/German Shephard, who is 2 years old, from Hungary. This name contest will last for a will, and then FCSO will announce the winning name.

This dog was selected after many candidates were reviewed, and he was the lucky winner. He has begun his training and was given the all clear on his health.

“It is always exciting to read the names submitted by our followers, said Sheriff Rick Staly. “It will be tough to fill Keanu’s paws. However, I’m sure our yet-to-be-named K-9 will surely live up to his predecessor’s legacy. A special thank you to Dr. DePaço for once again personally covering the cost of our new K-9.”

This K-9 was donated to FCSO by Dr. Caesar DePaco, CEO of Summit Nutritionals International, Inc. Dr. DePaco has donated the last nine K-9 officers for the FCSO which has saved over $100,000 in taxpayer money. Dr. DePaco has donated 170 K-9 officers to Law enforcement agencies all over the U.S. and abroad.
