K-9 Tuko has arrived in Northeast Ohio. The Canton Police Department posted a photo on its Facebook page showing Officer Ryan Davis and Tuko on a plane.
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.
