HOCKING: It is with a heavy heart that Hocking County Sheriff Lanny E. North reports the passing of Sheriff’s Office Bloodhound K-9 Sherman.
Sherman has been an invaluable asset to the Hocking County Sheriff’s Office and the community. He is credited with saving numerous lives throughout his career.
Sherman began his tour of duty and service to Hocking County in 2012 after Detective Woodgeard and Washington County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Keelan McLeish trained him for his certification.
Sherman was purchased with grant funding from the Hocking County EMA through the LEPC program.
Like all of the Hocking County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Units, he was supported completely through donations from the public.
Sherman will be sorely missed, not only by his handler, but by all the men and women of the Hocking County Sheriff’s Office.
