The Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office is introducing its new K9 Unit, Deputy Melvin Yoder and K9 Christo.
“Christo is from Berlin, Germany and started his career as a police K9 in 2018,” the sheriff’s office said on Facebook.
“He and Deputy Yoder, served with a neighboring agency where they trained with the Wyandot County K9 Teams weekly. They recently transferred to the Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office.”
The sheriff’s office said Christo is a dual-purpose K9 trained in narcotics detection, suspect apprehension, handler protection, tracking, and evidence/article searches.
“Deputy Yoder and Christo are excited to serve the citizens of Wyandot County and look forward to meeting everyone at future events!”
Earlier in August, K9 Ace retired.
