Sacramento police dogs raising money through calendar

SACRAMENTO, CA - Four-legged members of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department have a new job -- they're furry calendar models.

Dogs from the department's K9 unit are featured in a 2011 calendar designed to raise funds for the nonprofit Sacramento Sheriff K9 Association.

A 3-year-old German shepherd named Ronin is Mr. June. He's shown posing dramatically with his handler on the bank of the American River as a sheriff's helicopter hovers overhead.

The money raised will help pay training  costs for working dogs and medical costs for retired animals.

The calendars are $20 and can be ordered on the Sacramento County Sheriff's K9 Association Website through their online store.
