    How A Police Dog Led To Vicks Downfall

    How a Police Dog, Troy the Dutch Shepherd, Led to Michael Vick's Downfall

    One of the aspects of the Michael Vick dog fighting investigation that hasn't gotten much attention is how it all started. So let's explain: It all started with a dog named Troy.

    Troy is a Dutch shepherd (that's a Dutch shepherd in the photo, but it's not Troy) who joined the police department in Hampton, Va., last year. During a patrol outside a Hampton nightclub in April, Troy alerted his handler that he smelled drugs in the trunk of a car. Police found marijuana in the car, which turned out to belong to Vick's cousin, Davon Boddie.

    After arresting Boddie, police got a search warrant for the home address he listed, 1915 Moonlight Road. That was the address of the property Vick owned, and when police searched the property, they discovered 66 live dogs and evidence of dog fighting. Further searches yielded 17 dead dogs and evidence that Vick's claim of "I'm never there" was false.

    So it was Troy, out doing his job sniffing for drugs, who put a stop to a dog fighting ring, no doubt saving the lives of many of his fellow dogs in the process.
    Good For Troy
