Learn more about K9 Officer Charlie:
K9 Officer Charlie works with Officer Josh Bower of the Madison Police Department. K9 Officer Charlie is a German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois Mix. He was born in Hungary in August of 2018. Charlie was brought to the United States and was trained at Shallow Creek Kennels in Sharpsville Pennsylvania.
Charlie is what is called a dual-purpose canine which means he is trained to detect narcotics, track people, recover evidence, search buildings for people and to protect his handler and other officers. Charlie loves absolutely anything that lets him use his nose and discover things. His favorite thing is a toss-up between tracking and searching for narcotics.
When Charlie is not working, he loves to run, play wrestle and chase his other fur siblings around the backyard; however, even when not working he will do absolutely anything for his Kong Toy.
