A pit bull named Bolo needed just one day with the officers at the Hopkinsville Police Department for them all to fall in love.
Now sworn in as the first-ever “Paw-trol Officer” Bolo has found his fur-ever home.
Arriving at the station in Hopkinsville Kentucky as part of a publicity program for the nearby Christian County Animal Shelter, Bolo was only meant to stay for a day and contribute his handsome face to the Department’s social media posts as a means to help him find a home.
“Oddly enough, everybody fell in love with him,” said Police Chief Jason Newby.
“So when it came time for him to go back that day, they got him in his cage, and he kind of dropped his head and whimpered, and everybody’s heart melted, and we decided to adopt him.”
They didn’t just adopt him, they signed him up for the blue and black.
“[O]n Tuesday, during the Hopkinsville City Council meeting, Bolo was officially made a part of the team and sworn in by Mayor J.R. Knight as HPD’s very first Paw-trol Officer! We can’t wait to follow this sweet pup’s career on the force,” the Department wrote on Facebook.
In it, the mayor recited the traditional oath about supporting the citizens of Hopkinsville Kentucky as Paw-trol dog.
“You can bark if you want to,” said Mr. Knight in conclusion.
Short of a bark, Bolo committed himself to a bright future with an inky paw print and a photo.
