Myrtle Beach K9 officer to get protective vest

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – One of the Myrtle Beach Police Department's four-legged officers will soon have some extra protection while out in the field.

According to a post on the MBPD's Facebook page, K9 officer Daisy will receive a bullet- and stab-protective vest that comes courtesy of a charitable donation from the non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.

The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $1,050, the post stated. Each one has a value between $1,795 and $2,234, and comes with a five-year warranty. The average weight is four to five pounds.

Daisy's vest is sponsored by BlogPaws, a global community of pet enthusiasts, according to the MBPD.
