Ozzy Osbourne Donates Police Dog

The dog will replace a retiring K9 officer in the Muncie, Ind., police department.

Talk about a soft spot for dogs. Ozzy Osbourne and his son Jack are buying a police dog for the Muncie, Ind., police department after learning that one of the department’s three police dogs will retire this month.

“Jack and Ozzy are sending the check either this week or next week and then we’ll go get him,” MPD Sgt. Jay Turner told The Star Press of Indiana. Turner had contacted Jack for help getting a new dog for the department.

“We don’t have any money for the dog and Jack knew that,” Turner said, adding that he called and “ran the idea by him” last month.

“There was no hesitation. He talked to [Ozzy] and called me back in 10 minutes and it was a done deal. [Jack] said, ‘You guys have a new dog,’” Turner said.

The dog – who will be named Ozzy – is being trained at Vohne Liche Kennels in Denver, Ind. Osbourne’s donation will cover the cost of purchasing the new K9 officer, and a private group will raise money for food, veterinary bills and other costs, MPD Capt. Chuck Hensley said.
