A German shepherd rescued from a New York State animal shelter has become one of the state’s top crime fighting dogs.
Known as Sgt. Wheeler, the K-9 star who has helped find six bodies in police investigations was found wandering the streets of Brooklyn as an abandoned pup eight years ago, according to Petside.
Uncovering dozens of drug stashes, Wheeler’s record is exceptional.
But he’s not the only shelter dog serving on the force. About one-third of New York State’s police dogs are also rescues, according to the New York Daily News.
