APD’s newest bomb-sniffing dog needs a name


The Austin Police Department just welcomed the newest member to its bomb squad, but would you believe he still doesn’t have a name?

The APD bomb squad uses K-9s to sniff for explosive material, and also uses robots to access potentially dangerous areas.

APD tweeted out that this German shorthaired pointer worked his second day on the job, and even though they haven’t found the perfect name for him, they couldn’t resist showing him off.

Do you have any suggestions?
