I can tell Axel is a male…females LOVE new clothes!
Chelmsford police officer Axel has finally received a bulletproof vest. A 3-year-old Czechoslovakian shepherd, Axel has been K9 Officer Dave Leo’s partner since his predecessor Andy died from duty-related injuries two years ago. He received the vest in the mail a little more than a week ago, a late Christmas present.
Leo said many Chelmsford residents donated funds toward the vest, leaving Axel with more money than it cost. The extra funds will be used for other equipment for Axel.
Axel doesn’t like the vest much right now – the few times he’s had the stiff, bulky piece on, he’s made it clear he wants it off – but Leo said he reacted the same way to his harness. He’ll soon get used to the vest, Leo predicted.
