Baltimore County officials are applying stricter standards for the purchase of police dogs for a unit that has seen some dogs die of cancer.
The tighter standards, based in part on recommendations from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, include a close review of the dogs' bloodlines, county officials said. The county plans to buy at least three dogs.
