PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A new K-9 will be sniffing out illegal drugs in Oregon.

Sadie and her handler recently completed training and they are joining eight other Oregon State Police drug detection K-9 teams working around the state.

Sadie is an 18-month-old female red labrador. The new K-9 team will be working out of an office stationed along Interstate 84.

OSP drug detection K-9s are placed at strategically selected office locations, available to help locally and around the state as needed.

OSP's K-9s and their handlers were involved in the seizure of more than 800 pounds of marijuana, 123 pounds of methamphetamine, 113 pounds of cocaine, 90 pounds of heroin, 12 pounds of psilocybin mushrooms and other evidence in 2011 and 2012.

With the addition of Sadie to the force, another dog, Quincey, is retiring.
