meet office combs and k9 officer RADDog Like Me was honored to meet Warren County Sheriff’s Patrol Officer Terry Combs and K9 Officer, R.A.D. Officer Combs and R.A.D. did a K9 demonstration at the 2019 Tails & Ales Event, hosted by Adirondack Pub & Brewery in Lake George, NY.  R.A.D. is a 14-month-old Belgian Malinois. The annual Tails & Ales Event raises money for local shelters and Woofs for Warriors, Inc. The 2019 Tails & Ales event featured demonstrations, music, food and an amazing @DockDogs Competition.

R.A.D. is named after Richard A. Diamond, a former Hudson Falls police detective who died in 2018.  R.A.D. and his handler, Officer Combs, completed an intense 12-week training course through the NYS Police Canine Training Facility in Cooperstown, NY. Officer Combs described R.A.D. as still a bit scrawny and lanky, kind of like a teenager, but he’s still growing.  R.A.D. lives with Officer Combs and his family along with three other service dogs. They are together 24/7. The Warren County Sheriff's Office uses money from drug forfeitures and donations to purchase, train and feed K9 Officers. R.A.D. is a full-service K9 Officer, meaning that he is trained for detecting narcotics, tracking, building searches and handler protection.
