Nice work Cedar!
New police dog has a nose for drugs
MILFORD ---- It can be said that the newest Police Department recruit is also the friendliest member on the 110-member force.
Her name is Cedar and she's a yellow Labrador retriever. She greets people with a wag of her tail and a "please pet me" look in her eyes. She's not exactly the sort of dog that the criminal element would fear, that is, unless they're dealing in drugs. Ceder washed out in her first career choice ---- a guide dog for the blind.
"She likes to chase squirrels," said her handler, Det. Dennis Broderick. "That's not a good thing if you're a guide dog."
But if you like to read a second-chance story, you'll be pleased to know that Cedar was a quick study when it came to sniffing out drugs.
