Hometown Drug Dog Donated to Precinct 2 Constable

  The newest cop in Smith County has great eye sight, supersonic hearing, and four legs.

"Been" is a local dog who's sniffing out crime in his hometown. The drug dog was raised in Nooday. This week, his trainers, Rocky and Shannon Smith donated "Been" to the Smith County Precinct 2 Constable, Frank Creath.

Drug dogs like "Been" can cost as much as $10,000 to buy. The Smiths run a dog kennel in Noonday, and raised "Been" from a puppy.

"My biggest hope for him is that he's able to go out in this community and help clean it up. Get some drugs off the street," said Shannon Smith on Wednesday. "And seeing him around may help some kids realize that's not the smartest thing to do. And make this community a better place."

"Been" also received training from Secret Service officers. Constable Creath says the dog will be used to find illegal drugs and in search and rescue.
