Wednesday morning, the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office went to the dogs!
K-9 Officer Hondo and his handler, Officer Nimmo, were presented a bone shaped check for $3,179.86.
Money raised by Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office and two boys, 11-year-old Finnegan Hamlet and 8-year-old Jack Shaw will purchase a special gift for the good dog.
“I would say, ‘We’re raising money for an LMPD K-9 named Hondo to get him a bullet proof vest,’” Jack said on their approach of asking people to donate at the lemonade stand.
