The Union County (North Carolina) Sheriff's office needs help in choosing a name for their newest and most adorable K-9 officer. Right now the 11-week-old German Shepherd currently known as "Puppy Doe."
Sheriff Eddie Cathey asked people to submit potential names for the K-9 on a Facebook post titled "UCSO Requests Public Assistance in Naming New K-9."
To help, the department shared some traits Puppy Doe has shown: Likes long walks in the park Enjoys rolling around in the grass while being told not to Prone to public displays of affection (known to lick people without asking or providing prior notice) Enjoys tearing up a new tennis ball from time to time (only when the mood is right) Prefers his toys be thrown overhand, not underhand and Hails from a family of service dogs (his mother was an explosives detection K-9)
The five most popular names will be posted in an update with a request for the community to vote on a final selection.
UPDATE: They have narrowed down the list of names and need help to select the winner....
Here's how some local TV stations covered this cute story:
