Jason, a member of the Clinton Police Department, encountered Sonny, a German Shepherd, when the department identified the necessity of having a K-9 program. Both of them were forced to dedicate their days to each other, forming an inseparable bond.
Sonny’s olfactory senses were somewhere between 20 to 50 times greater than any human. There were times when the police had to search a 12 or 13-hundred-square foot house. It would have taken several officers to search for many hours to complete the task, but Sonny would conduct the search in a few minutes.
Sonny understood when it was time to work and when it was not. However, he had an even bigger job at home: being a big brother to his newborn sister. Jason and his wife had a baby girl, whom they had named Reagan. Jason was concerned about how Sonny would react to this new addition to the family. However, the German Shepherd knew that there was something that was changing.
