Our K-9 Reese and S/O Michael Mindo may have completed their twelve weeks of training back in August but the official graduation was held this week at the Ocean County Sheriff 911.

Sheriff Golden’s K-9 unit which presently consists of 8 sheriff’s officers and ten K9s is one of the best in the state and Reese is a significant addition and asset in apprehending criminals and locating missing persons.

It’s estimated that a bloodhound’s nose has 230 million olfactory cells, or “scent receptors”- 40 times the number in humans. They are trained to track skin cells from humans.
