Rock Rapids, Iowa — The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office has a new officer. A K9 officer that is.
The new canine team member, Missy, is handled by Deputy Kyle Munneke. He gives us a little information about the dog and what they’ve been doing.
Missy is originally from Jonesboro, Arkansas, according to Sheriff Stewart Vander Stoep.
Deputy Munneke says the money to purchase Missy came from Lyon County drug forfeiture funds.
Munneke says she is trained and certified as a single purpose K9. But she excels in both drug detection and human tracking. He says you’ll have a chance to meet Missy later this summer.
He says Lyon County’s other dog is a German Shepherd, handled by Deputy Rob Ver Meer.
