Drago and Pyro get to show off
The Green Bay Police K9 unit talked to market goers at the August 15th special Dog Days of Summer event at the Market on Military.
It was a great thrill to see both Drago and Pyro preform with their handlers and some were especially excited to see Pyro. After being stabbed by a bad guy this spring, Pyro looked great and there was no sign that his wounds slowed him down.
Pyro is a Belgian Malinois that was born in the Netherlands. His handler is Officer Scott Salzmann. Pyro lives with Officer Salzmann and his family when he is not working for the Green Bay Police Department.
Drago is a Belgian Malinois/German Shephard that was born in Hungary. His handler is Officer Jeff Brann and Drago lives with Officer Brann and his family when he is not on the job.
Both dogs are trained in suspect apprehension, tracking and narcotics detection. Pyro also has experience and training in handler protection and article searches.
