K9 Nauti will be trained by Officer Christian Kendrick, who was certified by the U.S. military to train K9s. It will be a while before she's patrol ready, according to their Facebook.
"We hope that she's going to make a difference and take some of the bad, bad drugs off of our streets," said Mayor Shirley Sessions.
Chief Hayes said that if Nauti works out great then maybe they will explore getting an explosives dog. Tybee Island police already have one dog, K9 Rocky.
"So if that's another avenue we can explore, we can take baby steps with that and see how we do," Hayes said.
