Bonito and Sergeant Jauernik are no stranger to success, the two have been a team since February of 2016.

“Since then he has over 60 pounds of marijuana, over 100 grams of cocaine, over ten pounds of methamphetamine and over 700 bindles of the heroine… the amount is the amount some handlers that work a dog for 10 years will not reach.” Sergeant Jauernik, OCSO K9 Unit
