CHELMSFORD, Mass. — As requested by an overwhelming number of Chelmsford residents who were saddened by the death of the town's beloved police dog, Andy, Police Chief James Murphy announced that a fund has been set up in Andy's memory to cover the cost of acquiring a new partner for K-9 Officer David Leo.
"There will never be another dog that can replace Andy, but I promise that when and if I get my new K-9 partner, I will work just as hard to make the community that much safer," Officer Leo wrote on The Sun's online message board Wednesday night.
