Petal K-9 unit takes top honors at statewide competition

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Petal Police Department has good reason to be proud of one of their K-9 handlers and his dog Boris.

At a recent statewide competition Smith and Belgian Malinous Boris competed against several other teams from around the state. During the competition Boris took top honors in the rookie patrol, rookie detector and overall detector categories making him overall top dog.

The performance by Smith and Boris was especially impressive seeing that they have only working together on the job for five-months.

"Makes me feel good, he wants to learn," said Smith. We train all the time, everyday, even on our days off. I also have a real good department that supports us and stand behind us 110-percent."

Smith and Boris have earned the right to represent Mississippi at the national competition.
