Very sad :(
The K-9 was a Dutch Shepherd, but incorrectly called a Malinois in the news story. Second link is older story and video of Ike and correctly identifies Ike as a Dutch Shepherd.

Cancer-sniffing dogs: Program harnessing dogs’ sense of smell could be key to detecting disease
Story Link
www.jerseysbest.com wrote:The brindle-colored Dutch shepherd named Lucy bounded into the sterile room, panting softly, her bushy tail wagging slightly, the pads of her paws clomping against the white floor tiles. She took her time circling a metal, wagon wheel-like contraption, carefully sniffing a series of ports sticking out on the ends, which contained different types of blood plasma.

Lucy sniffed one, two, three, four, then five of them. Suddenly, she turned back to the fourth. She stopped there, her wet nose pressed against the port — and the one correctly containing plasma from a confirmed ovarian cancer patient.

This story is a little different.

The fate of the town's only K-9 Duchess (a DS) is in Limbo. The town's mayor says they don't need the dog.

I hope there's a follow-up story, so we can find out the fate of the dog.

(Mayor Terry) Cosby said Cherokee, at this time, doesn't need the dog. "We don't have anyone in the Police Department willing to handle her," he said.

Cosby said he also was concerned about some unexplained injuries to the dog, including a foot injury and a significant scar across her snout.

Oh, that is terrible. I really hope the "unexplained" injuries were not abuse.

Hope they update the story after the Council meeting.

That said, this seems to be another instance where agencies "get a dog", but don't really "get a handler". Not to knock anyone, particularly considering I'm a terrible handler, but we encountered a working police dog at an event. I was surprised when the officer had to reinforce the sit command by physically making the dog sit. I *know* rely on Bramble the not a DS' ecollar too much, but I just remember thinking, hmmm at some point that powerful animal is going to be more powerful than you. Of course this was around the time Bramble pulled me out of my shoes

So, anyway, it seems it might be good for training facilities to have a handler standard.

I hope they work out a good hone for her. She is beautiful.
