Officer Brent Grewe/K9 Shelby

handler and dog

Shelby is a German Shorthair Pointer imported from Serbia. She and her handler, Conservation Officer Brent Grewe, are trained to assist conservation officers throughout the state with:

  • Tracking of persons
  • Locating objects with human scent
  • Wildlife, firearm and zebra mussel detection
  • Evidence recovery
  • Aquatic invasive species presentations and demonstrations

The use of specially trained dogs increases the state's abilities to detect wildlife violations, find trespassers and catch poachers.
