Odin NYS "K-9 Juna"

Odin vom Waldrand "K9 Juna" (Alex v. Farbenspiel SchH 3 x Nadia v. Waldrand SCHH1)

I bred and raised Odin and also trained him in basic tracking, obedience and protection work. Odin has a great personality and I knew he'd be a great working dog -- very solid in temperament and balanced in drives! I have another dog that I bred that is a NYS K9 and I know what a great life it is for a dog. So when circumstances made it difficult for me to continue his training, I made the decision to donate Odin to the NYS Troopers. He was 15 months old when he went into the training program and he was certified and on patrol by the time he was 20 months old. I am very proud of Odin and he is a tribute to Alex and Nadia. Odin, who is now named Juna, is living with his partner and handler, NYS Trooper Dan Synder, and doing what he loves to do — work!
