BEND, OR -- The Deschutes County Sheriff has a new K-9 that was donated last month by Tamaron Ranch Bloodhounds and it needs a name. After the dog was donated the sheriff started a process to pick a handler for the Bloodhound. The sheriff announced yesterday Deputy Donny Patterson will be the dog’s partner and the two head to California next week for training. The Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to help name the new K-9. Anyone with an idea for a name is asked to go to the Sheriff’s Facebook page and post their suggestions. The most popular names submitted will be put to a vote later this week.
