CONCORD, NH -- The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's K-9 Conservation Corps has a lively new recruit. "Moxie" is a 9-week-old Labrador retriever donated by Wes and Belinda Reed of Rise and Shine Retrievers in Barnstead, NH.  This is the second generous donation made by the Reeds to the Department through the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire.


Moxie was first presented to her new partner, Fish and Game Conservation Officer Eric Fluette, earlier in September. "Moxie will work on basic obedience, tracking, and exposure to both evidence and fish and wildlife daily," said Fluette.


Along with Fish and Game's other canines and handlers, Moxie and CO Fluette are expected to attend basic training at the Vermont K9 Academy, and "boot camp" at the 37th Basic Canine Patrol School next summer. The school is 544 hours and runs from July until November. Upon completion of the course, Moxie and CO Fluette will receive certification in tracking, evidence detection, and fish and wildlife detection.
