K-9 Diva Rules the School

K-9 Diva and students

Columbiana County K-9 Diva ruled the school at Southern Local Elementary, where she and partner Deputy Luke Skidmore were school resource officers for the day. Diva met students in their classrooms and showed how she follows commands and loves to snuggle. Deputy Skidmore has worked with the 1 ½-year-old Belgian Malinois since May and said she is very child-friendly and trains regularly for her role with the sheriff’s office. Diva is pictured playing with kindergarteners Kamden Blatch, Liam Sproull and Mackenzie Heines as well as following commands with Deputy Skidmore and student Easton Gowin.
