Tribe Kelley is down one pack member… their dog, Sarge Kelley, is now an IMPD K9!

Before FGL Fest on Saturday during the Big Machine Vodka 400 weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Brian Kelley and his wife Brittney donated their dog to the Indianapolis Police Department.

“So many of y’all have asked us about our 5th dog, Sarge, and we decided to donate him to an Indianapolis Police Officer at the FGL Fest today!” Brittney said in her Instagram story. “We really love him but he will have such a wonderful life serving the Indiana Police Department. We have been planning this for a while and as it was hard for us to see him go, we knew he would be an amazing aid to an officer. We will be able to keep up with him through his time serving!”

Sarge first walked into Tribe Kelley in June of 2018 when he was just a pup. According to CNN, they realized Sarge had special talents and would make a strong police dog.  “We are so excited that Sarge will live a life of keeping people and his officers safe,” Brian and Brittney Kelley said in a joint statement. “Being able to give back is something in our hearts and last night in Indianapolis was a moment we won’t forget.”
