K-9 Wolfgang is an ATF Explosives Detection Canine assigned to the Denver Field Division with Special Agent Canine Handler (SACH) Rennie Mora. K-9 Wolfgang’s job is to find explosives, guns and ammunition. He is also an ATF Search Enhanced Evidence K-9 (S.E.E.K.) able to work off leash up to 150 yards away from his handler and detect more than 19,000 distinct odors.
K-9 Wolfgang started his training with the Puppies Behind Bars foundation. K-9 Wolfgang and SACH Mora enjoy working on investigations with local and state law enforcement partners. In his downtime, K-9 Wolfgang loves fetching, tug of war, and playing with his sister K-9 Camille and brother K-9 Jackson.
On September 20, 2021, a Littleton, Colorado police officer was shot multiple times after responding to a shots-fired call. Four days later, on September 24, 2021, investigators arrested a suspect after he barricaded himself in his residence in Brighton, Colorado for several hours.
An initial search of the suspect’s residence revealed ammunition but no firearm. Local law enforcement reviewed footage and identified that a firearm was present at the residence on the date of the arrest. The investigators executed another warrant to search the residence.
SACH Mora and K-9 Wolfgang responded to a request for assistance and began searching the dilapidated attic. K-9 Wolfgang found the crime gun hidden in the insulation near the area where the ammunition was previously found.
