K-9 Brune Foundation Purchasing Another K-9 in Honor of Morgan Taylor
We love when four-legged friends come to visit Historic Studio D. Especially if those friends are named K-9 Brune.
K-9 Brune, with the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, is very special to us. K-9 Brune has been in the DelmarvaLife studio many times! If you want to read the full story as to how K-9 Brune became one of Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office’s K-9’s, go here.
Brune’s recent appearance is part of a “thank you” the community. Donations to the John Brune Law Enforcement K-9 Foundation enabled the sheriff’s department to purchase protective equipment for the K-9 Unit.
Brune’s handler, D.F.C. John Seichepine, along with Sheriff Mike Lewis, explain why this equipment is so vital, as the department works to protect Wicomico County.
Sheriff Lewis says K-9 Brune sniffs out drugs each day he is on patrol. Sheriff Lewis says he is so proud of the K-9’s for all that they do and the purchase of bulletproof vests for them help protect them as they work to protect the community.
Morgan Taylor of Salisbury, Md. passed away at 21-years-old after an opioid overdose. Sheriff Lewis reached out to Morgan’s parents after her death and found out that Morgan’s parents, family and friends wanted to contribute to the opioid crisis and to fight back.
Morgan’s family and members of the community chose to donate to the K-9 Brune Foundation and they raised enough money to purchase another K-9. Sheriff Lewis says they will name the K-9 Morgan after Morgan Taylor.
