The Appleton Police Department has a new member of their team. His name is Blue, and he is a 12 week old Golden Doodle. Blue was recently added onto the team, and has rookie status. He will undergo training and certification to be a therapy dog, and should be “on-duty” by next spring. Blue will receive his training in the Fox Valley Humane Association Therapy dog Program, and will be the only known station dog in the state. Blue will have several responsibilities once he is certified, such as comforting victims, helping grieving children, and assisting at community events.
