▶️ Good dog! Bend drug-sniffing K9 Bonnie can now detect fentanyl


A member of the Bend Police Department was recognized Wednesday for her dogged ability to find illicit drugs in Central Oregon.

Drug detection K-9 Bonnie is trained to detect methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and was recently certified to sniff out fentanyl.

“Which is really important for our community because we’re seeing a huge increase in fentanyl abuse in our community. And so she is detecting drugs all over town, and she’s more than a pretty face,” said Sheila Miller, Bend Police Department Communications Manager.

Since January 31, Bonnie has detected:

  • 2,741 grams of meth
  • 350 grams of heroin
  • 48 grams of cocaine
  • 403 grams of fentanyl in pill and powder form
