The Lubbock County Sheriff's Office recruited a new member Thursday... this one specializes in detecting bombs!
Iggy is a 2-year-old, female black lab. She joined the Lubbock County Bomb Squad Thursday to replace Biff, who retired back in May. Sergeant David Turner picked up Iggy from Virginia, following four weeks of training. Usually handlers go through ten weeks, but this class will do the final six weeks of training at home. Iggy and Turner will do follow up testing in August.
Turner tells NewsChannel 11 Iggy is a bit of a tom-boy. "When I first got Biff, he was scared to death of steps. He didn't like slick floors. Iggy, she is not scared of anything. She could care less, just point me in the right direction and let me find it," says Sgt. Turner.
Iggy is living with Biff at Turner's home. Turner says they may have to get a bigger bed, because both dogs have claimed it their spot.
