Rescue Dog Hired by Police Department

It is quite common to refer to the police as the “fuzz,” but in the state of Minnesota in the United States that term has a very different meaning. You could even say that they have a literal interpretation of the fuzz. That’s because a very fuzzy individual became a member of the department. It all started last year when Officer Kathryn Smith, who works for the St. Paul Police Department went out on a call to a local farm. There was a stray dog with puppies who had been on the property for several days and needed to be rescued. After bringing all the dogs to safety, Officer Kathryn adopted one of the puppies and named it Fuzz.

However, around the Police Department the puppy is officially known as Sergeant Fuzz. The Police Chief typically brings his family’s dog Stella to the office on Fridays, so Fuzz joined in on the Friday fun. Not only was it enjoyable to have Fuzz in the office, but officers who have a stressful job reported that the puppy helped them to deal with stress and even take little breaks to smile and enjoy his company. That’s why the department decided to hire Fuzz as a “cuddle officer” to work about ten hours a week in the office to play with staff members and give cuddles to anyone who needs them.

Fuzz is actually a very calm and sweet dog, which is why the department plans to enroll him in a therapy dog program. That means that someday, when he’s old enough, he can help plenty of people going through tough or stressful situations. In the meantime, everyone in the St. Paul Police Department is enjoying the snuggles and love from Fuzz when he visits the office. Animals are such an important part of our lives, and having a dog in the department has made such a positive impact already!
