SWAR K-9 police officer and dog take top spot in competition
TEXARKANA, AR (KSLA) -
"Say please, say please!"
Texarkana, AR K-9 officer Randy McAdams and his partner Gus have received the honor as "Top Dog" by the United States Police Canine Association, Region 20.
The duo finished first overall during canine certification and competition in McKinney, TX. The team has placed in the top four the past four years.
Gus is a 5-year-old German Shepherd and is used in patrol and narcotics.
"Oh, it is like coaching your son in baseball and getting the Little League Championship and he hitting a grand slam home run and winning the game," McAdams said. "It is awesome because there has been hours and hours put into training."
McAdams has served as a canine handler for 13 years, the last five with the Texarkana, AR Police Department with Gus at his side. Now the two will try their skills at the national competition in South Carolina this October.
