In training: Dog groomed for police work in Miami

On a cold and windy day before Thanksgiving, an officer from the Miami police K-9 unit was hiding in a garbage can around the unit’s headquarters in Flagami. He wouldn’t stay there long. A police dog was out to get him.

The Humane Society of Greater Miami held a Barks & Bubbles Holiday Doggie Wash on Saturday, Dec. 13, 2014. For a $5 donation, four-footed family members enjoyed an outdoor bath, towel dry and brushing. The event also offered “Paw-casso” Holiday Paw Prints (think finger painting for dogs using their paws), pet boutique holiday specials, music, games, refreshments and a visit by Santa. The donations will benefit the Humane Society of Greater Miami, a “no-kill” nonprofit shelter at 16101 West Dixie Hwy., North Miami Beach.
