From the Parsippany Focus:

Morris County Sheriff’s Office K9 Boomer has completed his Explosive Detection Initial Certification with his K-9 handler, Detective Michael Carbone. K9 Boomer, a twenty-one month old German Shepherd / Labrador Mix has been trained at the Morris County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Training Academy. His incredible sense of smell makes him a vital resource to Law Enforcement all over Morris County. He is assigned identification #K9 229 and has quite the success story, going from a shelter dog to being one of the highly trained dogs working in the Sheriff’s K-9 Section.

From the Daily Record:

The Morris County Sheriff’s Office found a way to harness the puppy’s energy, and today the German shepherd, Labrador retriever mix, is the newest star of its K-9 unit. Freshly certified after 14 weeks of training, Boomer is now an explosives-sniffing specialist.

Life’s turnaround for Boomer, who is about 18 months old, was celebrated Wednesday by Sheriff James M. Gannon at the office’s K-9 kennels and obstacle course in Morris Township.

Congratulations on joining the Morris County Sheriff’s Office, Boomer!
