ALICE, Texas (AP) - A narcotics-sniffing dog in South Texas that
helped with several drug cases has been taken from his kennel.
Jim Wells County Sheriff Oscar Lopez says the 4-year-old German
shepherd is named Ivo (EYE'-voh).
Lopez told The Associated Press on Thursday that the dog turned
up missing from the kennel in a deputy's fenced-in back yard in
The sheriff described the dog as black with brown feet, "very
friendly, but he's useless to anybody else."
Lopez says the dog was reported missing Saturday after
"somebody went in and got him out of there."
The sheriff declined to speculate on who took Ivo.
