Deputy Dixie is on the job.
Dixie is the newest deputy at the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office. She’s a 2-year-old bloodhound, and she’s only one of two dogs in the state with the kind of tracking certification she has.
With a command and a sniff from something with the target’s scent, Dixie can get to work.
“If we have somebody running from the deputies or we have a missing person, Alzheimer’s or a child or something of that nature, that’s what she does,” said reserve deputy Glen Pike.
