Meet Henry County’s new K-9 officer

Posted: Updated:
HENRY COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Henry County Sheriff's Office has a brand new resource to sniff out and track down crime.

It's the first week on the job for Deputy Mark Glanz's new K-9 partner Andy. So far, it's been a busy one.

"In the last three nights on the job, we've done two building searches," Glanz said.

The 13-month-old pup is ready to track down missing people, evidence, and protect his handler. He's a resource Henry County never had before Sheriff Michael Bodenbender took office.

"We always had to borrow from another county or another jurisdiction," the sheriff said. "And it's one thing that you always have to wait, and now we don't have to wait anymore. The dog's here and ready to go."

The sheriff says Andy and his training were paid for by private donors. The K-9 will live with Deputy Glanz when he's not on duty.

"It's a nice feeling to have a partner there with you that you know has your back through thick and thin," Glanz said.
