Now, Schettler has penned a new book to share with the world how he and a police K-9 worked together to bring criminals to justice.
“Red Dog Rising,” which reads like a crime mystery novel, is Schettler’s memoir of working with Ronin, a bloodhound that was the country’s first full-time police K-9.
It contains accounts of the most interesting cases Schettler has worked, including the hunt for Olympic Park Bomber Eric Rudolph in the Georgia and North Carolina mountains, the Yosemite National Park serial killings and some of the most famous child abduction cases.
Schettler, a retired police K-9 handler who operates Georgia K-9 National Training Center, will be signing copies of his book at 11 a.m. Sat. Jan. 8 at Yawn’s Books & More in downtown Canton.
