According to the department, Scout provides therapy to both APD officers and civilians by relieving stress, curbing anxiety, and putting people in a better mood.
APD recognized in their video announcement that 2020 has been a hard year for everyone and that sometimes all we need is a four-legged friend to help us through.
You can see that Scout has done just that in the video as she goes from room to room putting a smile on everyone’s face.
In times of stress, we could all use a little puppy love and a wet kiss.
APD shared to stay tuned to their social media for more Scout adventures and updates on the expansion of the PAWS unit.
