BCSO COVID-19 K-9s Helps Kids

Two COVID-19 sniffing K9s for Bristol County Sheriff's Office are making a bigger impact than just smelling for the virus. Huntah and Duke were picked up by the BCSO in April 2021 to become the nation's first COVID sniffing dogs in law enforcement USED over the past year through 28 schools between the districts of Acushnet, Fairhaven, Freetown-Lakeville Regional, Norton and Attleboro, as well as other locations like Coastline Elderly Services and the spaces used for Portuguese School twice a week at the DeMello International Center in New Bedford. Capt. Paul Douglas says other times, the dogs therapeutic impact has taken on more personalized form stating, "If a kid is upset, my thing is, I hand them the lead and let them walk around with my dog,"
