The Goodhue County Sheriff’s Office has recently added a new K9.
Ambush is a 2-year-old Belgian malinois/German shepherd cross donated to the sheriff’s office by K9s 4 Cops, a non-profit organization that helps to provide law enforcement agencies with dogs. He is cross trained in narcotics and patrol work.
Ambush and his handler, Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Bowron, went to basic K9 school for 6 weeks in Peru, Indiana. Deputy Bowron has been with the Goodhue County Sheriff’s Office since 2008. He and Ambush join three other K9 units in Goodhue County.
Ambush will receive a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to the efforts of Vested Interest in K9s Inc., an all-volunteer charity in Massachusetts whose mission is to provide the $950 vests for K9s throughout the United States.
