"Called To Give My All"
 
                         I am a deputy in a canine crew.
                       I've been trained to see it through.
                      When danger's near my ears perk up,
                        they taught me that as a little pup.
                       I'm often there to protect your rights,
                     my presence sometimes hinders fights.
                        I never attack with thought to kill,
                        when subduing one, my job I fill.
                         I never worry a single thought,
                       as to how I'll fare at a certain spot.
                       The love I have for a handler's care,
                          is all I need, each day to fare.
                       And if some day my luck turns bad,
                          I'll relish all the joys I've had.
                          To be with men who stand for
                      good, in a special kind of brotherhood.
                        The story's end by now you know,
                         of how I tried for a better show.
                          I did my best, though I did fall,
                       when I was called and gave my all.

ABOUT DRUG DOGS

 K9 "Justice" is a Narcotic detector dog, which simply means that he is used to help in searches for the odor of narcotics. Simply  put, the dog has better olfactory senses, which are in the nose and used in the detection of odors. For example, when you smell  perfume or cologne you only smell one fragrance, the dog on the other hand smells the water, and the different fragrances that  combine to make the one smell. The dogs nose knows! When you see another dog sniffing a light pole or a fire hydrant it is not only sniffing it to get the other dogs scent it is acquiring many, many facts, such as what breed the dog is, when it was last there, if it was a male or female, and if the pole is a regular stopping place of the dog. So simply put, there noses are extraordinary! Why we use them in law enforcement is simply for the fact that the drug dealers have a lot to lose in today war on drugs. They are getting crafty in hiding the illegal contraband. With secret compartments in vehicles or in ceiling tiles in their homes. This is where the K-9 comes in handy. For example, say police officers were executing a search warrant on a house and the resident of the house was a drug dealer, he know where he has the stuff hidden, we don't! If it was a big house it would take 5 officers a couple of hours to search it thoroughly, and probably miss a lot of stuff, plus the department would have to pay the officers while they were working! With a dog it would cut the search time down dramatically and you don't give a dog a paycheck, you give him food, water, shelter and love. The one time expense of purchasing the dog, training the officer that is going to handle him, and maintaining the dog, ie, food, vet bills, etc. will not out weigh what you pay the officers in a year to work on the drug problem. A good K-9 team will really be beneficial to the department, and most of all the community.
