WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — A new K-9 dog is bringing Dutch lingo into the Walnut Creek Police Department and boosting morale among officers.
The 3-year-old German shepherd is called "Orfas" — a name given to him at the kennel he came from in Holland. Officer Pat Duggan, who is paired with the dog, said he considered changing the name to something more American, since he doesn't know what Orfas means.
