“For Those Alpha Dog” Fans Wondering About Blekie
Update on Blekie,(AKA Bron) the dog that had bitten its handler on the Alpha Dog show during the seminar that was filmed in Terre Haute, Indiana.
Thursday, 21 February at about 0230 I was called to conduct an exterior vehicle search of a vehicle one of our local units had stopped. There was about a 12 mph south-southwest wind and the vehicle, an extended cab GMC truck. was parked facing east, lucky me. I started my partner on the front driver side of the vehicle and immediately noticed that he was in odor. Bron (aka Blekie aka Blackie) began a sniff along the driver side and upon reaching the area between the driver door and the rear half door, threw his head back at the driver’s door and literally slammed his ass to the ground. I was pretty confident at this point that there was something in the vehicle.
After speaking with a very hostile driver and explaining to him that I had probable cause to enter his vehicle. I opened the driver side door to conduct a safety check and could smell an overwhelming odor of raw marijuana. I brought Bron back to the vehicle for an interior sniff. He sat as soon as he reached the driver side door. Subsequent search of the vehicle resulted in locating three one gallon plastic zip lock bags on the rear driver side floor board. Total weight was 1409 grams or about 3.1 lbs.

I attended the class with the intention of learning a few new ideas but instead I was totally blown away by Wades knowledge and found everything I knew about being a decoy was extremely limited. The class is a must for EVERY handler." Jim McGrath, Arlington Heights IL PD.
