Patrolman Jared King was approached about becoming a dog handler and when he accepted the new dog, Quinto, came to live with him and his family.
King said Quinto living at his house is very important.
"It helps with the bonding experience between the canine and the handler. It makes a better cohesion and a better team. It's kind of like your military guys living in the same bunk. They work better as a unit when they live together."
King was apprehensive about having the dog at his house with his wife and 3 small children but Quinto is very gentle.
Quinto was specially trained to find drugs and illegal substances and will hopefully be with the department for at least 8 years.
