Selma police K-9 found

Posted November 29, 2012

— A police K-9 reported missing last weekend has been found, Selma police said Thursday.

Police said they believe Jin escaped from her pen at her handler's home in Pine Level late Saturday.

Pine Level resident Ben Moye, who had been searching for Jin for several days, reported seeing the black-and-tan German shepherd in a wooded area, and an officer went to the area and found the dog, Police Chief Charles Bowen said.

Jin has a slight limp but didn't show any major health problems, Bowen said. A veterinarian who looked at the dog Thursday said it probably had been hit by a car, but it's leg wasn't broken.

    Dog is MALE ...officer refers to Jin as HE ....... when will the WRAL anchors get that right?

    Jin would have had to be in season (heat). It is not as easy as one would think for a dog to get pregnant. If it is not at the exact time in her cycle it won't work. I was a breeder of German Shepherds for 7 years.

    It? I thought the second paragraph said Jin was a "her".

    A vet of all people should know if an animal is male or female and call it as such...not an "it". LOL
