Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office K-9 "Buster" Is On Duty & Ready To Serve

San Andreas, CA...The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office would like to introduce “Buster” to the community. Buster is Dutch Sheppard narcotic detection canine. This is the first canine in over 14 years for the department. The Sheriff’s Office recognized the need for a canine however, funding for the program has always been the determining factor. The funding hurdle was overcome largely in part from a partnership with a local non-profit organization Friends of Calaveras Sheriff Office. Friends of the Sheriff organization stepped up and provided 100% funding for the purchase, training, and equipment needed for the program. Friends of the Sheriff have also pledged to continue their support to the program by assisting with monthly and yearly financial needs of the canine team...

Photos Above And Video Up Soon

Buster’s handler is Corporal Chad Poortinga. Corporal Poortinga has been a member of the Sheriff’s Office for over 10 years. Corporal Poortinga went through an internal selection procedure that consisted of a test and bonding process to see how the canine interacts with the deputy. Corporal Poortinga was selected over several other members of the department. Corporal Poortinga and Buster just completed their six week Peace Officer Standards and Training certification and will be on patrol soon. Buster is the only canine for the Sheriff’s Office for the time being.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank many people and businesses for making the canine program happen. Special thanks to Arnold Pet Clinic, Spence Feed, Wes Hauzahn Kennels, and Friends of the Sheriff for their continued support of the program.

Buster is more loving looking than ferocious. At least we won't have to wait for the Angels canine, or Sonora canine to come and help us.

    He is a drug detection dog, strong ball / prey drive does not have necessary defensive drive for a police dog to take down criminals and bite. He probably failed in defensive drive testing, shows how little you know anything about working dogs.
