Donations help Wyoming sheriff’s office acquire 2 new K-9s
GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) | By JAKE GOODRICK – A Wyoming sheriff’s office has two new K-9s on the force with help from community donations. Campbell County sheriff’s deputies Trevor Osborn and Kyle Rhoades are the handlers of Borys and Torc. Borys is a Belgian Malinois and Torc is a Dutch Shepherd. The sheriff’s office lost two of its three dogs last year when one K-9 handler retired and another dog was diagnosed with lymphoma. The Gillette News Record reports that dogs trained for law enforcement are expensive — about $18,000 a pup. The community pitched in to help cover the cost, with donations coming from a variety of business and organizations.
