McINTOSH COUNTY, Oklahoma - One of Oklahoma's Own is helping a police K-9 officer get back on his paws.

Gino is a drug dog for the McIntosh County Sheriff's office. His partner, Deputy Kevin Barnscum, said Gino has had some expensive medical issues the past few months.

Carrie Underwood heard about Gino and donated a guitar to be auctioned off to help with expenses.

The Checotah Public Schools band is also chipping in with a fundraiser.

If you want to help donations are accepted at Peoples National Bank in Checotah.
