“Ozzie’s drive to learn is amazing. Training with him is a phenomenal experience,” said DeMeo. “However, continued training is necessary to maintain and improve skills.”

DeMeo referred to Ozzie as a “dual-purpose canine,” noting that he is trained to locate lost people as well as searching for drugs.

“Ozzie has been trained to aggressively scratch when he locates contraband,” said Deputy DeMeo. “If you get pulled over by a team involving a K-9, and have something illegal hidden in the vehicle, and don’t want the vehicle to get torn up, I recommend telling the officers where the drugs are.”
