Franklin County Sheriffs Office Welcomes Newest K9 Unit

ROCKY MOUNT – The Franklin County Sheriffs Office is welcoming another 4 legged member to its force. “Khaleesi” is an eight month old German Shepard/Malinois hybrid that was recently donated to the department by Brianna Oleson of Hope Animal Rescue.

Khaleesi and her handler Tim Burton will soon begin training to become the newest narcotics detection dog. She will be replacing Burton’s current partner Rex who will be retiring at the age of 11.

The department would like to thank Ms. Oleson for not only donating Khaleesi but also paying for her transportation from Des Moines, Iowa to Franklin County.
