The 17-week-old bloodhound was introduced earlier this month. He was donated by Tamaron Ranch Bloodhounds in September. Deputy Donny Patterson, a 12-year veteran of the sheriff's office, was selected to be his handler.
When the sheriff's office received the bloodhound, he was nameless. So the sheriff's officeasked the public for name suggestions.
On Nov. 12, the sheriff's office said they received thousands of name suggestions and over 2,600 votes on the top 20 names, including Sherlock, Gunner, Scout, Red and Copper.
With 870 votes,Copper came out on top.
