Maggie, the newest member of the Owego Police Department in New York, isn\u0027t your typical K-9, according to her partner, Officer Andrew Pike. Unlike most police dogs, who come from overseas and cost upwards of $10,000, Maggie was a stray.\u00a0The pitbull-malinois mix was adopted from a shelter and returned twice. Her high energy level might have made her a tough fit with a family \u00e2\u0080\u0094 but she\u0027s perfect for police work."There\u0027s no better partner," said Pike.She came to Owego thanks to the Southern Tier Police Canine Association, which finds shelter dogs, trains them, and places them for free."We\u0027re matching up with departments who can\u0027t afford to have a dog on their own," Sergeant Rick McCulskey, president of the Southern Tier Police Canine Association, explained.\u00a0Pike said Maggie is a policeman\u0027s best friend. When Pike was asked if he\u0027s going to want to work with a human partner someday, he replied, "Probably not after this. I mean, it\u0027s going to take a pretty special human to replace her."
