Fire department welcomes first K9
PINCH, W.Va. (WSAZ) - The Pinch Volunteer Fire Department added a furry, four-legged member to the department.
K9 Willow, a golden retriever, is joining firefighter Justin Withrow as an air-scent dog.
Willow is training to help search and rescue operations and will be available to deploy both locally and statewide to assist in searching for lost people.
Air-scent dogs work with their nose in the air, ignoring ground scents, following and locating people by catching the ‘hot’ scent in the wind.
