RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. — This is a cute emergency.
The Randolph County Sheriff's Office has a new deputy-in-training.
Her name is Dixie and she has the best floppy ears. She's a bloodhound puppy!
The sheriff's office made the announcement about Dixie on Facebook. She's around two months old and was given to the department by a local family to help further the K-9 program.
The sheriff's office said Dixie will be trained for single-purpose tracking. She'll help sniff out clues, people who are lost, and runners, but for now, she'll just attend meetings and demonstrations as a cute puppy.
Welcome to the force, Dixie! What a girl.
