K-9 Unit

(Name Translation = Thunder)

Bronto was born on February 5, 2005 in Westoverledingen Germany. His mother is Conny vom Windpark; an SV registered German Shepherd from Westoverledingen Germany. His father is Arcan vom Feuerwachturm; an SV registered German Shepherd from Hemsloh Germany. Bronto spent the first two years of his life in Germany and Holland being prepared for his future in law enforcement or military service.

We chose to purchase and import our dog from Europe as the standard of breeding overseas is much stricter. These standards consistently provide dogs from good working lineage that are free from hereditary defects such as hip problems or overly aggressive behavior.

Bronto arrived in the United States in June of 2007 and was trained by Dondi Hydrick of the Cross Creek Training Academy in Edgefield, South Carolina. Bronto is certified in drug detection, obedience, handler protection, suspect apprehension, and police tracking of criminal suspects as well as lost or missing persons.

Our handler, Sergeant Ed McCormick, completed a thirty day handler training and certification program at the Cross Creek Training Academy, and graduated on September 7, 2007

Ed and Bronto will begin patrolling Warren County as a K9 Team in mid September of 2007. Bronto will be a full service patrol dog, and we feel he will quickly prove himself to be a great asset to our department, and to the overall community we serve.
