Handler Optmistic As K-9 Kina’s Health Improves

GREENWOOD (KFSM) -- K-9 Greenwood officer Kina went back to the vet on Wednesday (Aug.17).

"Her wounds were still open. They were left open so infection wouldn't set in. After a couple of days they wanted to bring her in and get them closed up," Kina's handler CPL. Dennis Wisner said.

Kina was sedated while the stitches were put in. Wisner said Kina is doing very well considering her two gun shots wounds.

He said the support and donations that have come in for Kina have been amazing.

"She has every treat known to man kind," Wisner said.  "She's had doggy ice cream, doggy cupcakes. You name it, she's got it."

A fund has also been set up at Farmers Bank. Anyone can donate to the Kina fund and nearly $5,000 has already been donated.

Wisner said Kina is part of his family.

" She's not just a dog to me," Wisner said. "She's my partner. If I'm at work, she's at work. We do everything together."

Wisner said once Kina is physically healed he will determine if she can return to work for the Greenwood Police Department.

"We have to wait until she's physically healed first," Wisner said. "Then, we are going to take her and get her evaluated. We have to make sure her drive is still there, she's able to handle gun fire and stuff like that."
