SRSO’s New Bloodhound Puppy Has A Name. And It Is…

September 12, 2020

The new Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office K-9 bloodhound puppy has a name.

Over 8,200 entries were submitted in the SRSO “Name Our K-9″ contest.

And the winner is….. K-9 Nez.

Nez is French for the word nose, which is the reason why bloodhounds are so good at what they do. The name was submitted by Jo Morgan who will have an upcoming opportunity to meet Nez.

    Yay Nez! Our first bloodhound was named, “Rhino” after the rhinencephalon brain (they are professor geniuses) in this area!

    @Anne, Gotcha sounds pretty good however, this dog will more than likely be finding missing persons, not finding criminals as it’s a rare occurrence a criminal escapes.

    Beautiful Hound and Great Name but My Goodness look at the size of those Paws.
    He is going to be a Very Big Boy.

    We were sitting around the living room thinking up names and the better one was “GOTCHA” because that will be what his handler will say when they find their person.

    These dogs do wonderful work in schools, church events, showing their abilities to find missing and lost children and adults.

    They do great work in finding those who are sought by our LEO for criminal activities. Remembering “Shorty” tracking down the guy on Blue Angel who had shot at them.

    Nez, you’re going to be GREAT…Woof.
