Deputy Danny has a few grey whiskers under his chin and is set to retire in the spring, according to Wadena County Sheriff Mike Carr.


"He's showing his age a little bit," he said about the nearly 10-year-old dog.

Danny has worked for the county seven years, Carr said. His nose is still good, but drug dogs are in their prime ages 5-7.

The K-9 officer is the first dog to serve in the sheriff's department in recent years, Carr said.
