The Coon Rapids Police Department did not have to look far to find its newest police dog, Buddy.
The department was left without a canine unit when Logan was found dead in his kennel by his handler Officer Mark McDonough Nov. 17 at the age of eight.
Logan’s death in his sleep was a shock and a surprise because McDonough said the dog was very healthy.
But the department soon had a new dog on the streets – thanks to McDonough.
According to Coon Rapids Police Chief Tim Snell, McDonough approached him about bringing on board a new dog that he had been training.
