JOPLIN, Mo. – Canine Hugo received his new piece of equipment at the Troop D service center. An event was held for the presentation of the vest by Going to the Dogs, an organization that cares for animals. Representatives say they’ve always been fascinated with the canines in law enforcement.
“If they do get attacked, if they get shot, I hope that this, my goal is this vest saves their life,” explained Donna Wilson with the organization.
