Move over McGruff the Crime Dog, there’s a new sheriff in town. Actually, it’s a “comfort dog.”
It’s a 4-month old yellow Labrador puppy and it’s getting ready to soothe crime victims as a comfort dog for the Concord Police Department.
According to the police department’s Facebook post, Liberty is believed to be the state’s first comfort dog for a police department.
New Hampshire-based nonprofit Hero Pups is training Liberty, who will also accompany Concord officers at community events.
Hero Pups typically trains service dogs for first responders and veterans.
