The praise is still flowing for a hero K-9 dog in Ohio this week who was able to track down a missing three year-old child in under 10 minutes.
A K-9 named Bandit (shown above) and his primary officer, Deputy Frank Bleigh, received a call on Tuesday about a three-year-old boy who had been missing from his front yard in the town of Sidney for 45 minutes, according to WDTN.

In less than 10 minutes, Bandit picked up the boy’s scent about a quarter of a mile away. – READ MORE
