The Police Have A New Weapon In The Fight Against Crime… And He’s Delightfully Small.

This is Spot. Spot is an official employee of the Woods County Police Department in Utah.

What comes to mind when you think of a police dog? Usually, they're broad and muscular German shepherds that go through an intense amount of scent and agility training. They're very well-behaved (and usually quite sweet), but the look of them is enough to make you nervous, even if you haven't done anything wrong.

Spot is not that kind of dog.

Though he might look different than the burly canines you're used to seeing on the force, it turns out that Spot is just as important to his squad as the next mutt. Check out the gifs below to learn more about Spot, and why he just might be the toughest pup at the pound


His fellow officers sometime call him Spoticus.
