In late 2012 K9 Huey, at the time a 9-week-old German Shepherd, joined the force, and immediately began training with Chief Dodge. K9 Huey was trained exclusively by Chief Dodge, who also holds a K9 Trainer certification through the Vermont Police Academy. In 2013 Sgt. Dodge and Huey challenged the Drug Detection Certification at the Vermont Police Academy and became certified as a Narcotics Detection Team. Huey was trained to detect the odor of several different illegal narcotics, and  trained in many different environments.

In May of 2014 Chief Dodge and Huey challenged the Patrol Certification at the Vermont Police Academy and were certified as a Patrol Team. Huey was trained to help locate missing persons or criminals, search buildings for criminals hiding inside, locate evidence of a crime, and protect Chief Dodge when necessary.

In November of 2018, sadly, Huey passed.
