Frost and Trigger are the new K9 team

The Wadena County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) received a special donation from McDonough K9’s, a new furry, four-legged deputy.

The WCSO jumped at the opportunity, knowing that K9 Nitro may retire in the next few years. For the time being, the department is elated to have two K9 teams.

K9 Trigger was paired with Deputy Terry Frost, and they began their grueling three months of training as a duo in April. They stayed in Blaine, using various metro facilities for the different training sessions.

Trigger is a three-year-old German Shepherd with a massive head. Trigger’s name was chosen by the Wadena County elementary students.

Frost, a New York Mills native, has been with the WCSO for the past nine years. He previously worked for the Wadena, New York Mills and Perham police departments. . .
