After four-and-a-half busy years employed with the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office, K9 Pelle will trade his title of “canine deputy” for that of “pet” and return to the care of his original handler, Chad Mobley. During their March 3 voting session, the Board of Commissioners approved a request from the sheriff’s office to retire the 7-year-old Belgian Malinois from law enforcement duty. Mobley, a former DCSO deputy, will become Pelle’s owner.
