is currently a K9 officer with Union County Sheriff’s Dept., Tennessee. She is a founding member of Tennessee Area Search and Rescue and on Knoxville Police Dept’s Search and Rescue team. Missy and her Bloodhound Josey have also assisted the US Marshal’s Service, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and several surrounding counties with K9 Searches and Forensic detection. Josey had her first real life “find” with a department at 8 months old, followed by much more.
Missy is married to Marvin Carter and feels they are extremely blessed to have K9’s Josey, Rogue & Quannah in their lives. “With each new day, no matter which K9 we work, they teach us something new, and to be able to do what we love is a special feeling I just can’t begin to describe.”
