The Manchester Police Department asking the community what it should name its new comfort dog.

A four-month-old male, the dog’s mother was a rescue dog that gave birth to seven other puppies now being trained to help the community.

After training, the dog will help individuals following traumatic experiences through the department’s critical response management team and the ACERT program.

Individuals within the department have nominated five names related to Manchester and police-related themes, with Mayor Joyce Craig endorsing “Patch” (short for dispatch.)

On top of that, he's a licensed notary and licensed to sell property, casualty and life insurance, he's been a USSF trained youth soccer and futsal referee for the past six years and he can name over 60 national flags in under 60 seconds according to that flag game app he has on his phone, which makes sense because he also has a bachelor's degree in geography (like Michael Jordan). He can also type over 100 words a minute on a good day.
