Minnesota Sheriff's Dogs Get Body Armor

From Washington County, MN (St. Paul Pioneer Press): "The next time the Washington County sheriff's canines gear up for a manhunt or armed standoff, they'll be sniffing around in new body armor.  The six German shepherds each received a $710 protective vest as a gift from the DeLonais Foundation about two weeks ago and are being trained to wear them.  Deputies say the Kevlar vests, which fit like a saddle, will protect vital organs if the dogs are shot or stabbed trying to take down a dangerous suspect."
