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.
