Calif. K-9s get body armor vests
Vest NPDP, a nonprofit program, is dedicated to protecting K-9s
San Jose Mercury News
PALO ALTO, Calif. — The next time Aris dashes into a building on the heels of a bad guy, he won't be naked.
Aris and his two fellow Palo Alto police dogs, Amigo and Ilan, were presented Tuesday with bulletproof vests emblazoned with their names. They were the latest beneficiaries of Vest N P.D.P., a nonprofit program run by Susie Jean, a Socorro, N.M., woman who has dedicated her career to protecting K-9s since she saw one shot on a television news program eight years ago.
