Monday afternoon, the two arrived at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

Davis and Dave Blosser with Tri-State canine services spent Monday at K9s4COPS in Houston, looking for Davis' new partner.

K9s4COPS is a non-profit organization which is donating the K-9 for training.

It was earlier this month, Officer Davis' K-9 partner Jethro was killed as they investigated a burglary at a Canton grocery store.

Jethro was shot multiple times and died the next day.

The man arrested in the killing remains jailed on a 5-million dollar bond, charged with felonious assault and shooting a police dog.

Davis says Jethro will always have a special place in his heart.
