Sheriff's Department hopes for speedy K9 recovery

The Door County Sheriff’s Department is working as if they will have their K9 back on the streets later this month. K9 Odinn went into surgery last week after his handler Deputy Matthew Tassoul noticed one of his testicles was extremely large.  After multiple ultrasounds at the veterinarian’s office, K9 Odinn was neutered to prevent further problems and had a cyst removed near his prostate. Tests were done to see if K9 Odinn has any other underlying issues post-surgery. Chief Deputy Pat McCarty says if everything checks out, their dog will be back on the job in Door County.

Until then, McCarty says they will contact the City of Kewaunee Police Department or the Brown County Sheriff’s Department if they are in dire need of a K9. He added there have been no conversations to replace K9 Odinn just in case larger issues with his health arise.
