It was the first day of duty for the newest member of the Bend Police force - and "Ranger" helped find a missing man within an hour. 

 

Wednesday just before noon, an over-70 year old man with dementia wandered away from his home in the High Desert Assisted Living facility, and the residence officials alerted Bend Police - because the man had health issues.

 

Lt. Chris Carney says Ranger came to the rescue.  "The brand new member of our canine program, Ranger's first day at work. Him and his handler, Officer Voll, came in at 9:45 [a.m.] for the regular shift and at 12:37[p.m.] the call came out.  So they went out and when the officers were trying to check the area in their cars, and on foot at some locations, we were actually able to track, using Ranger from the facility over to where they found him."

 

Ranger is a purebred bloodhound - and that breed's specialty is tracking because they have such a keen sense of smell.

 

Carney says the man was found in pretty good condition near Rose Pharmacy - although a bit dehydrated because he was wearing a heavy jacket in the temperature was near 70.
