SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) -

After taking a week off of work, K-9 Scout is back on the job with the Slidell Police Department.

According to the Department's Facebook page, Scout has been anxious to get back on the job, but he misses his new 2015 Chevy Tahoe, which is being repaired after taking gunfire in a shootout last Friday in Olde Town.

“Either way, Scout is just happy to be healthy and back patrolling the streets of Slidell!,” the post said.

Slidell Police Chief Randy Smith thanked a Slidell girl and her family for bringing gifts to the three officers and Scout, all of whom were involved in the shooting. The Slidell Memorial emergency room staff also thanked the officers and K-9 for "saving the day" with donuts and healthy dog treats.
