MONROE, La. (AP) - A police dog is on the lam in northeast Louisiana.

Monroe’s assistant police chief tells KNOE-TV (https://bit.ly/1DQvED7 ) that Ducko (DOO-coh) the Belgian Malinois (MAL-uh-NWAH) was let out of a patrol car for a potty break Saturday night and made a break for it.

The News-Star reports (https://tnsne.ws/1rGdzjv ) that Ducko has been with the department about a year. He’s fawn-colored with a black mask and ears. He’s wearing a silver choker chain.

Assistant Chief Don Bartley says the dog is not aggressive unless given a command by an officer.

But he says Ducko is a police dog and should not be touched or approached. He’s been trained to respond to commands in a foreign language.

Bartley asks anyone who sees the dog to call the Monroe Police Department immediately.
