BEATRICE – The Gage County Sheriff’s Office is on the verge of getting a new canine officer, funded through private donations.
Sheriff Millard Gustafson says about $23,000 in private contributions has been raised, for acquiring either a German Sheperd or Belgian Malinois. The first payment for the dog has been made to a supplier in Texas.

Gustafson says he expects very little tax money to be used for the acquisition and operation of the canine program.
