The Duluth Police Department's newest K-9, Vili, has graduated from training and joined his partner Officer Josh Aubart for his first patrol shift Monday.

Vili is a Belgian Malinois and German shepherd mix born in Hungary in October 2018. He's trained in narcotics detection, article search, tracking and apprehension. According to the Northland K9 Foundation's Facebook post, his favorite toy is a yellow foam ball on a rope.
