(Minneapolis, MN) -- Eight Hennepin County Sheriff Department K9s have new bullet proof vests. Money for the vests came from a fundraising effort by Massachusetts-based Vested Interest in K9s, Incorporated. The dogs receiving the new protection are trained to find drugs and bombs. Sheriff Rick Stanek calls the new vests a "big asset in keeping our four-legged crime fighters safe while on duty."
