The Clarendon Enterprise November 15, 2007 ine joins consta ce to com The Donley County Constable's Office now has four extra feet on patrol in Precincts 3 and 4. A two-year-old Lab-Great Dane mix named Diesel joined the ranks of local law enforcement in October and is ready to sniff out narcotics. Constable Tony Sellers said he first thought of the need for a canine unit in his office after visiting with Tanner Blackburn, who was going to canine school for the Panhandle Police Department. With support from the district attorney's office and interested individuals, Sellers attended canine training and obtained Diesel, who is state and federally certified in the detection of four different narcotic odors. A custom badge for the dog was provided by Kevin Johnson. "He's already had hits on three cars," Sellers said. "If he alerts on a vehicle, that's probable cause to search the car." Sellers said the olfactory Center (where the sense of smell is located) makes up 20 percent of a dog's brain compared to five percent of a human brain. Diesel - Constab!e Canine Unit "He's a deterrent to drug traf- fickers just being here," the con- stable said. Diesel usually stays with Sell- ers around the clock and provides the constable with added protection in addition to his detection skills. Sellers' canine unit also will be made available to assist the Donley County Sheriff's Office and the Department of Public Safety when needed, and the dog is expected to have a career of about eight years.
