Richland County police dogs gets bulletproof vests


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The Richland County Sheriff's office now



has 15 new bulletproof vests



for its police dogs thanks to



donations after one of the dogs was shot to death.


The custom-made vests mean each of the agency's 16 dogs will be



protected. Sheriff Leon Lott



says the office has 14 Belgian



Malinois, one Bloodhound and one Dutch Shepherd.


Lott says donations for the vests came pouring in after a police



dog named Fargo was shot



three times as he and his handler hunted



for a robbery suspect in December.
