Milwaukee Police Department welcomes first-ever facility service dog, 9-month-old 'Crush'
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Police Department and Chief Norman are welcoming a new four-legged member to the team.
"Crush," a 9-month-old Golden Retriever, is the department's first-ever facility service dog.
In a post shared on social media Thursday, MPD said Crush was acquired after a generous donation by Partners with Paws Service Dog Corporation, a nonprofit dog training organization.
They say Crush -- which stands for Canine Response Unconditionally Supporting Health -- will be assigned to the Wellness Team and will be cared for by MPD's health and wellness coordinator, Officer Benjamin Ade.
