The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office of New Hampshire decided to implement a K-9 team in 2021. The primary functions of this K-9 unit would be for patrol and narcotics interdiction. The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office K-9 team would attend the Boston K-9 academy for both patrol and narcotics.
Deputy Abele was selected to be the handler for this unit. Being a previous handler, he knew the kind of K-9 the Sheriff’s Office needed to be successful. The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office acquired K-9 Saber who was bread at Battle Road K-9 located in Billerica MA.
Deputy Abele and K-9 Saber bonded almost instantly when introduced to each other. This K-9 team went on to certify in patrol and narcotics in 2021. This team has been working the County of Rockingham since September of 2021 and they have been staying extremely busy locating criminals and sniffing out narcotics.
Deputy Abele: “K-9 Saber has met my expectations and more. The bond we have developed over the past year is unbreakable. I could not ask for a better four-legged partner.”
