ROGERS COUNTY, Okla. — The Rogers County Sheriff’s Office recently welcomed a new K-9 deputy to the force.
Micah, a 4-month-old bloodhound, will serve in the department’s K-9 Search and Rescue Unit.
She’s still in training but should be finished by the time she’s 1 year old. Deputies hope to train her to eventually be a cadaver dog.
The Sheriff’s Office asked Facebook followers for help naming Micah. Her name is a tribute to Detective Micah Lee Flick, who was shot to death during a stolen car investigation in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Micah’s handler, Will Draper, worked with Flick in El Paso County.
