Scout was born in Hungary in December of 2011. His exact birthday isn’t quite known, but Scout himself is certainly unforgettable! He served for the Hamilton Police Service for six years before retiring and made quite a name for himself throughout his career!
In March of 2018, Scout located a 93 year old man who had wandered too far from home and gone missing. The man spoke little English and was hard of hearing, making search efforts for him more challenging, but Scout knew exactly what to do! He was in a hypothermic state when they found him, but luckily Scout found him just in time! The man was transported to hospital and survived.
On another occasion, a suspect fled from police from multiple areas, starting a lengthy police chase to apprehend him. The suspect crashed and fled on foot. Scout located his track and found the suspect right away!
Scout began his well-earned retirement at the end of 2019. His fellow officers will certainly miss hearing him howl along to the sirens on the way to his calls!
