The department of police plays a crucial role in maintaining peace in society. They dedicate their time and skills to solving cases as soon as possible. However, many times, the limelight is only on the police officers and it leaves out a major chunk of people working behind the scenes. But that's not the case with K-9s or police dogs. They get appreciation every time they prove their skills. CBS News reported that a brave furry hero rescued a 12-year-old boy who went missing. After the child had been missing for over 2 hours, a K-9 was deployed from the Auburn Police Department to help track the boy. However, her intellect and astute actions did more than just help. In the freezing temperature and biting cold, the search was challenging, but K-9 Biza persisted, nevertheless. The police followed the dog, who was shrewdly chasing the boy's scent for over 2 miles, till she led the team to the missing boy.

"Due to the freezing temperatures and nature of the incident, numerous Auburn Police Officers and Troopers from the Massachusetts State Police converged on the area in an attempt to locate the child. Detectives from the Auburn Police Department and Detective Bureau responded to assist as well," the post read. That's when the hero came into the picture. "Officer Ljunggren and his K9 partner Biza were deployed. K-9 Biza was able to pick up a scent and began to track the scent. K-9 Biza tracked for a length of over two miles and led Officers to an area where evidence showed that the child had been present a short time earlier. Officers converged on this area and located the child a short time later."
