There’s a new comfort dog in town.

Every day, Fred the yellow Lab starts his morning by taking a long walk around the Maryland School for the Deaf campus.

I saw an article yesterday about the Virginia Tech PD getting a “Patrol Pony” that will accompany Officers around the Campus to spread goodwill and is already attracting the attention of the students in a similar manner. Maybe we should get the SRO’s in our schools a happy pup to see if it will change the vibe in schools.
