NEW RECRUIT–Corp. Everett Ekdahl takes a knee with his new partner, Edy, a German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois mix. The dog was brought to the U.S. from Slovakia, and Ekdahl had to learn commands in Slovakian in order to work with the dog.

There’s a new officer in town whose bark is not worse than his bite. Meet Edy, the Keweenaw Bay Tribal Police Department’s newest recruit. At 17 months old and 72 pounds, the German shepherd/Belgian Malinois mix has been on duty just under a month, and is already proving an asset to local law enforcement. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers..
