Despite all of the horrible news lately, this story will surely melt your heart.
An image of a tiny German Sheppard
puppy made head waves across the world this week. Even though the police vest doesn't quite fit Tuco, the sight of him wearing one was simply enchanting.
The interesting aspect of it all, though, is that the dog was slated to be named Batman, his original name given by Vest-A-Dog, who makes the bullet-proof vests for the canine crew. However, the runt’s handler, Troy Caisey, stated that the dog was to remain Tuco. Caisey has had the pup since he was eight-weeks old. Caisey is a 22-year vet who has trained over 350 canines for the force. Breaking Bad
fans may remember Tuco Salamanca as the notorious drug dealer, Caisey's inspiration for the puppy's name.
Vest-A-Dog posted the photo of Tuco on their Facebook page in hopes that their organization would become successful in selling their 2015 calendar. The calendar showcases photos of canine cuties from the state. All the proceeds will go to equipping the K-9s with vests to ensure their safety while on duty. Tuco was nine weeks old when the photo was taken, but now he is six months old -- not so little anymore.
In due time, Tuco will channel his inner Rin Tin Tin K-9 cop persona, but in the meantime, the adorable pint-size puppy will be in training to become the volatile force that K-9s are proven to be. That is, if he is mature enough to handle the task.
