Shane Beohm and his K9 dog, Otis, are back on duty with the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.

The two were off duty the past few months after Shane suffered a stroke and went through a rehabilitation program. Otis recently recertified and on his first assignment back, alerted to contraband.

“He continues to make his presence known,” said Beohm. “Otis is a dual trained dog – he does narcotics and patrol-related duties. We are glad to be back. We have a strong commitment to law enforcement and this office.”

A golf scramble is scheduled July 14 at Carroll Meadows Golf Course to help defray costs associated with the care of Otis. Beohm said proceeds help pay veterinarian bills and for equipment of the K9 vehicle and Otis.

Cost is $60 per person for the scramble, which begins at 8 a.m. To sign up, contact Shane at 330-324-5584 or Melanie Beohm at 330-904-1904. Make checks payable to the Carroll County K9 Fund.

“I appreciate everyone who supports the K9 fund,” said Sheriff Dale Williams, adding he is pleased to have Shane and Otis back with the department.
