SHERMAN, Tex. -- Some Cub Scouts are hoping to help some K-9s overseas. Pack Nine in Sherman kicked off their community service project at Wakefield Elementary Monday night.

They plan to collect cans for a month and use the money to buy toys for the K-9 soldiers in Iraq.

Oskar, the Sherman K-9 officer, and his handler officer, Tim Gann, demonstrated some of Oskar's skills.

The dogs are mostly trained in Germany and are not used to the warm climates of Iraq, so soldiers, both two and four footed, appreciate the support.

"We just wanted to find a way to help the dogs,” said Stephanie Rowland, a scouting parent and program coordinator. “The handlers, we've sent packages to them and we just wanted to find a way to support the dogs. We love dogs and wanted to help."

The pack says are hoping for someone to pay the cost of shipping, so they can use their all their can money to buy toys.
