HELP THE MUSKEGO K-9 UNIT ADD A NEW MEMBER TO THE TEAM!
In November 2013 Muskego PD’s first K-9 officer, Sirius joined the department. Sirius is a German Shepherd who was born on 3/6/12 in Germany. He got his name from a contest we held. A heroic dog with the same name was the only K-9 killed in the 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers.
Everything in the K-9 program, except the handler’s pay, is funded through donations. This includes not only the dog, its ongoing training and gear, but also a specially equipped squad car. I was happily surprised at how quickly the community came together to raise the funds for Sirius.
Sirius’ handler, Sgt. Shawn Diedrich, has held just about every assignment an officer can have in Muskego. To provide additional coverage for the city when Sirius is off duty, Obi (also a German Shepherd) was added in October of 2019. His handler is Officer Andrew Sundstrom.
When the K-9’s are not at work, they stay with their handlers in their home. With Sirius, now 9 years of age, he is soon going to retire, which means staying with the Diedrich family and chasing a Kong instead of “bad guys”. The focus for this fundraiser is to find another K-9 officer to take over for Sirius and allow him to enjoy his well deserved retirement.
