FARMINGTON, Utah, Dec. 23, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Davis County Sheriff’s Office has welcomed a new K-9, Loki, to replace K-9 Nonos, who retired last month.
“We are so excited to announce that our new K-9, Loki, has arrived!” said a Facebook post from Davis County. “In addition to being well loved, he’s also our first Instagram post. Lucky Loki!”
Officials also shared a video of Loki, which can be seen above.
The addition of Loki to the department is announced during a time of transition after K-9 Chopper died last month after being struck in the roadway by a vehicle, officials said.
“Chopper, a K-9 with Davis County Sheriff’s Office for 5.5 years, died on Nov. 20 after running into traffic,” a statement from the department said.
Chopper, a six-and-a half-year-old Shepherd mix, was trained in drug detection, tracking, deputy protection, building and area searches, and the apprehension of suspects, the statement said.
