"He can work and he is currently certified and currently training," Richardi said, adding that Edge's life has already been greatly extended from the three weeks he was given had he not received the chemotherapy drugs.
On Monday, Richardi said the department acquired "Khaos," a 1-year-old female German shepherd through a grant from the Portsmouth-based Working Dog Foundation of New Hampshire and will begin her drug-detection and tracking training and certification immediately. It is hoped that Khaos, and her handler, Deputy George Stevens, will report for duty this fall.
He said Wolfeboro discontinued its canine unit earlier this year, and Moultonborough's four-footed officer is getting older, just like Edge. There is, however, a canine unit at the Freedom Police Department, he said, and one in the area operated by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.
