Chase is on the case! Newest furry member of GPD has a name after social media vote
Chase is on the case! Parents and grandparents of the toddler and preschool set will recognize the catch phrase from the animated show Paw Patrol, but it’s also the name of the newest member of an eastern North Carolina Police Department.
A couple of weeks ago, the Greenville Police Department’s Animal Protective Services division found a pup they believe is about five months old abandoned on the side of the road. No one claimed him, so officials said they decided to keep him – and put him to work.
GPD officials reached out through social media, asking for help to name the dog, and with 42% of the vote Chase has been chosen.
In October, Chase will be sent for training at Top Dog Academy, where he will learn to be a therapy dog – to provide comfort, affection and emotional support for both officers, other department employees and people in the community.
