Indiana dog kennel trains police K-9 to send to France after Paris attacks
DENVER, Ind. (Dec. 16, 2015)– An Indiana dog kennel is helping police in France by providing training for a dog to be used by raid teams.
After a K-9 officer named Diesel was killed during raids following the Paris terrorist attacks, Vohne Liche Kennels teamed up with Summit Nutritionals International to donate the dog. The kennel provided training for free, and Summit paid for the dog.
Wednesday, a French K-9 handler came to pick the dog up to begin its new mission.
The owner of the training facility says he hopes this will help the French raid teams, and at the same time they can share training techniques that will help both the U.S. and France.
Earlier this month, Russia donated a puppy to show solidarity with France.
