“We’re thrilled to introduce the community to the newest members of the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office K9 team: Huntah and Duke. Huntah (think Hunter but with a Massachusetts accent) is a 7-month-old female black lab who will be partnered up with Capt. Paul Douglas. Duke is also 7 months old but is a male lab/retriever mix who will be the partner of the newest officer to join the unit, K9 Officer Theodore Santos.
Huntah and Duke are half-siblings born two weeks apart who have the same father. Big thanks to Dr. David and Jane Askew of Dartmouth, who are big supporters of our K9 program and donated the funds to brings Huntah and Duke to Bristol County.
We have some exciting news to share about Huntah and Duke in the weeks ahead.
Good luck to our new K9 teams as they begin training next week.”-Bristol County Sheriff’s Office.
