BURLINGTON, N.C. — Three Burlington police dogs will soon be a even safer while on the job.
Last week, K9s Cairo, Koda, and Gunner were all fitted for custom-made ballistic vests designed to protect them in violent or disaster situations.
Representatives from the organization Spike's K9 fund came to Burlington to get the dogs' measurements.
The four-legged officers will get their vests delivered in about 3-5 weeks.
Spikes K9 Fund was founded by a retired Special Warfare Operator whose mission is to provide protective gear and medical care to working K9s in law enforcement and the military.
