PORTAGE (WKOW) -- The Columbia County Sheriff's Office has a new deputy. But this one runs on all fours and has a tail.
The sheriff's office over the weekend introduced its new K-9, Riley.
Riley is 13-months-old and full of energy, according to a post on the sheriff's office Facebook page.
Riley will begin training in the next few weeks with Deputy Ron Stage, and be on patrol by Jan. 1.
