he K-9 officer shot during a search for a fugitive returned to work on Tuesday.
When Titan was shot about two weeks ago, police said, by a fugitive in the woods in northern Tangipahoa Parish, it raised the issue – of the need for protection for police dogs.
Deputy Albert Sharp, Titan’s partner, said he would have been shot if Titan wasn’t released.
“I have no doubt that if I hadn’t cut him loose out in front of me, then one of us would have took that bullet instead of him,” he said. “(K-9s are) not going to back down. So, you shooting at him, he’s still going to go after you — He doesn’t know not to.”
