VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — The Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Office says it’s getting two protective vests for its K9 dogs as a result of a donation.
The sheriff’s office said in a statement Wednesday that the vests are being donated by the Newport News-based Atlantic K-9 Vest Fund and are valued at more than $1,000 each. The sheriff’s office says the vests will help protect its two dogs in the event of a shooting or stabbing.
The sheriff’s office says the vests will be worn by Candy, a 4-year-old German Shepherd trained in narcotics detection, and Roxie, a 4-year-old Labrador-Schnauzer mix trained in explosives detection.
The dogs are getting measured for their vests on Thursday.
