PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A golden retriever found $85,000 worth of heroin after digging in his family’s backyard.

According to KOIN, the Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon said the 18-month-old dog named Kenyon found black tar heroin.

The dog’s owners thought it was a time capsule from previous tenants. But they soon discovered it was drugs.

The sheriff’s office awarded Kenyon with a ribbon and named him as an honorary narcotics K-9 for life.
