LAKELAND, Fla. - When his chief told him there was no money for a new narcotics dog, Polk County Sheriff's Deputy John Maney went to the pound, adopted and trained a dog himself.
Maney, who has previously worked as a handler for five canines, turned down several dogs. He focused on ones that showed alertness, lack of fear and an eagerness to learn. He adopted an eleven-month-old black lab mix in March and named him Rezadu.
They trained in abandoned phosphate mine property and open fields for 12 weeks, detecting illegal narcotics.
Rezadu did so well that he was nationally certified in August.
