Goodhue County Sheriff’s Office K9, Ambush, Retiring Soon + They Need Your Help
The Goodhue County Sheriff's Office has a beloved K9 named Ambush who will be retiring at the end of the year, so they are looking for his possible replacement. In the past, the sheriff's office has worked with a nonprofit organization called K9s4COPs. That is where they have gotten all of their current K9s and they are hoping to work with them again.
They could use our help, though! A Virtual Dog Walk Fundraiser has been set up that we can partake in and donate to. Here is a little information about the fundraiser from Matt Bowron, a K9 patrol officer:
Every dollar I raise for K9s4COPs will go towards the purchase of highly trained K9 partners for law enforcement agencies needing assistance. You can also ask me how you can join my walk team and fundraise for K9s4COPs yourself!
You can find all of the information about the Virtual Dog Walk Fundraiser and a spot to donate HERE.
As for Ambush, he seems to have had a very successful career. In a recent post from the Goodhue County Sheriff's Office on Facebook, they praised Ambush for another job well done.
Goodhue County K9 Ambush was called in to the City of Red Wing to assist in locating a suspect from a burglary/domestic incident. After two attempts and several hours Ambush located the suspect hiding in the woods. He was taken in to custody without incident, surrendering just as Ambush closed in on him.
