The DeSoto Parish Sheriff's Office would like to congratulate Deputy Kelby Pearah on his recent completion of the US K-9 Unlimited Academy out of Abbeville, La. Dy. Pearah has been with the DeSoto Sheriff's Office for 7 years as a patrol deputy and was able to complete his training in DeSoto Parish under the instruction of certified K-9 instructor, Cpl. Will Bates. He recently completed 320 hours of duel purpose K-9 training in both narcotics and patrol. Pictured with Dy. Pearah is our new addition to the DeSoto Sheriff's Office family. K-9 "Rex" is a 3 year old Dutch Sheppard. Rex is social, friendly, and was hand selected from several other K-9's and showed to be the best candidate. The DeSoto Sheriff's Office has two K-9's in our unit including Cpl. Will Bates and his K-9, Borris.
