Wane TV

LIGONIER, Ind. There are ten full-time members of the Ligonier Police Department, but Tuesday night that number almost dropped to nine.

Thanks to CPR and some quick thinking, Officer Josh Halsey saved his partner, but he says when he saw him lying motionless on the ground it was one of the scariest moments of his life.  "I came up to him and when I grabbed him he just flopped," said Halsey.  "He was lifeless."

Halsey's partner is not a typical police officer.  He is a 70 lb. german shepherd, named Samo.  He is also one half of the Ligonier Police Department's K-9 unit.
