STAFFORD, Kansas (FOX 26) - Police in Stafford, Kansas have a new K9 officer, Kano: a Red Nose pit bull that was actually rescued by a San Antonio-based organization, Universal K9.
The San Antonio organization partnered with Animal Farm Foundation to train rescue pit bulls to sniff out narcotics or explosives.
Universal K9 facilitates free police dog training.
Kano is the first known pit bull to work in such a role in Kansas.
"One of the first things I noticed about Kano was he loves to work. Regardless of knowing who I was the first couple of days, Kano showed his worth when it came to work. Kano is trained in locating Marijuana, Methamphetamine, Cocaine, Heroin, and Ecstasy."
