The Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office says 18-month-old Kenyon was digging in his family’s backyard when he came upon $85,000 worth of black tar heroin.

His owners originally thought their dog had come across a time capsule from previous tenants, but upon opening realized it was a controlled substance.

Deputies came to the house and said it was 15 ounces of black tar heroin.

Kenyon was awarded a ribbon and named an honorary narcotics K-9 for life.
