From the Bureau of Land Management:

Say hello to Kahr, our newest law enforcement recruit. 

BLM Southern Nevada District Office (SNDO) recently welcomed its newest K-9 team — Ryan Parr and his German Shepherd partner Kahr. Born in the Czech Republic 18 months ago, Kahr immigrated to the U.S. and began training at Shallow Creek Kennels in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania. 

In October, SNDO’s Law Enforcement Officer/ Field Training Officer Ryan Parr began training with Kahr. Six weeks later, they were certified by the BLM and North American Police Work Dog Association for narcotics (marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and ecstasy) and patrol (tracking, area search, apprehension and handler protection).

Proving that the first week of work doesn’t have to be a time of transition, Kahr made his first drug find on the second day of work.
