ALLEGAN, Mich. – The Allegan County Sheriff K9 now has body armor.

The department announced Thursday that Lajki received a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a donation from Vested Interest in K9s, Inc., a non-profit from East Taunton, Massachusetts.

The vest was sponsored anonymously.  The donation for one protective K9 vest is $950.  Each vest is valued between $1,744 and $2,283.  The vest has a five-year warranty and weighs about four or five pounds.

Lajki is a two-year-old German Shephard and has been with the Allegan County Sheriff for about a year.  The department says that Lajki has already found illegal drugs on several occasions and has several successful tracks.  He also spends time in schools and at community events.
