Police Pup Wednesday


Officer Johnston hung out with Kia this weekend! Kia is a 1 and a half year old Labrador Retriever mix. You may have heard or seen Kia before since she was one of the pups in our first group who joined the Home for Hounds program with the Dallas Country Jail. She learned sit, shake and lay down while being trained by her inmate. She loves to be active and would love to be a hiking buddy or a lake dog (she loves to swim!). Kia has been adopted!!
