Dixie is going back on duty.
Dixie, a Snohomish police dog who specializes in drug detection, was let go in January because of budget cuts. So was Kizar, a police tracking dog.
When the dogs were laid off, a grass-roots group in Snohomish decided to raise money to get them back.
Their efforts led to the Snohomish Police Foundation, a nonprofit that supports police programs.
