7 year old Ethan has always loved dogs. After adopting a German Shepherd puppy a little over a year ago, he has taken a special interest in studying and reading about police dogs. This past Monday, this inspiring police K-9 handler was able to fulfill his wish of meeting a police dog, thanks to Officer Wicklund and K-9 partner George of the Green Bay Police Department.
This same day Ethan heard devastating news that the Green Bay PD had lost one of their loyal K-9's, Cops. The news hit Ethan as he had lost a long time friend. He decided he wanted to hold a bake sale to raise money to help the K-9 unit purchase another dog. Unfortunately, food allergies hinder him from doing so.
Thank you for helping Ethan and his K-9 friends!
Seven-year-old Ethan Engum is helping Green Bay Police cope with the loss of their beloved member of their team.
GREEN BAY – Just one month after losing one of their K-9 officers, the Green Bay Police Department can look forward to getting a new one soon.
And it is all thanks to one little boy.
According to WBAY, 7-year-old Ethan Engum wanted to help raise money for a new K-9 officer.
“I feel good. Feel like I’m helping them,” he said.
This weekend, Ethan took more than $500 to the department and he even got to play with another Green Bay Police K-9 named George.
One day, Ethan said he hopes to work as a K-9 handler too.
Ethan’s goal is to raise $12,000 for the Green Bay Police Department’s K9 program.
