CLAY COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - A Region 8 sheriff's department is welcoming a new officer.

The Clay County Sheriff's Department officially has a new K9 on duty. 

Marko is the newest member of the force. 

The Clay County Sheriff's Department announced it would be getting a new K9 in June. 

Marko came at just the right time because the sheriff's office lost its other K9 to heartworms in July.

Marko and K9 officer Terry Burdin immediately started training in late June and started patrol in July. 

Burdin said Marko has already proven to be a great asset to Clay County.
