The Marshall Police Department recently added a new K-9 unit to their K-9 division.
On November 26, Amor, a solid black German Shepherd was handpicked by the Marshall Police Department. The staff was actively involved with his training with handler, Officer Justin Mills.
Marshall Police officials say after losing two of it's K-9 units over the past year, Amor is a welcomed addition to their department.
Amor was born in the Czech Republic on June 5, 2010. Amor began his training in the Czech republic at K-9 work dogs. He was then purchased by Worldwide Canine in Spring Branch, Texas, where he continues his patrol training, and began training for narcotic detection.
Donations from the Marshall Lions Club and Diane Hester, Summit United Methodist Church, LATX Operations, Mr. J. Cleveland Heard, William Hatfield as well as all proceeds from a Marshall Police officer Association raffle made the purchase of Amor possible.
Amor is patrol and narcotic certified, which means not only can he see out hidden drugs and contraband, he can also be used to track lost children and feeling suspects.
