Cornell Police K9 team member Reggie poses with his handler – and rescuer – Officer Kevin Noterfonzo.
Noterfonzo rescued Reggie from being euthanized; the black lab had been in three adoptive homes and the caregivers were unable to handle him, but Noterfonzo brought him to Ithaca and trained him. So man rescues dog. And now dog rescues humans.
In the video below, Noterfonzo and Reggie demonstrate police dog behaviors and the jobs they do, including explosive detection and human tracking.
