Hartford VT Police Department’s K-9 Dozer has received a bullet and stab protective vest from Vested Interest. Judith Douglass of Manchester Center VT sponsored the vest, embroidered with “In Loving Memory of Frankie.”
Dozer is a one and half year old black lab and is certified as part of a drug detection team with his handler Officer Eric Clifford. Currently Dozer is in training to track lost and missing person and will attend a tracking course at the Vermont Police Academy next year. Dozer’s speak command is “America” and loves to show his patriotism by sporting an American flag on his collar. Dozer is probably the most popular police officer in Hartford and the community absolutely loves his goofy, loving personality.
Vested Interest has supplied many of the Upper Valley K-9 Police dogs with armored protection. The 501c charity organization was founded in 2009 and is in East Taunton MA. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provides information, lists events, and accepts tax-deductible donations of any denomination at www.vik9s.org.
