North Fayette’s new police dog, Nevo, started service May 5.

Cpl. Todd Heufelder, the dog’s handler, introduced the K-9 during the township supervisors’ meeting tonight.

A male German Shepherd-Belgian Malinois mix, the dog is trained to track scents and detect drugs.

"Dogs have personalities too, and you have to match personality and work ethic,” Cpl. Heufelder said. “I think we're a good match."

The canine already has found narcotics during two calls.

The dog and all related equipment and training have been funded by grants and donations.

“Not one cent was paid with taxpayer money,” board Chairman Jim Morosetti said.
