Handler: Detective J. Flanders
Department: Kendall County Sheriff’s Office
Years Worked: 2010 – 2018
Tazwell was born in Poland and found himself in Fort Wayne Indiana where I met him in September 2009. We trained together with the Allen County Sheriff’s Department for just under four months and he ultimately became certified with the International Police Work Dog Association (IPWDA) for Narcotics and Patrol. Tazwell worked the mean streets of Kendall County from January 1, 2010 through January 1, 2018. During his time on the streets he located numerous suspects and quickly became a favorite of our local drug unit. His love of his red Kong ball motivated him to be the best in his profession! Since his retirement due to arthritis in the knee he has lived the good life with me, although he misses work!
