Here's The Cutest Police Dog Wearing The Tiniest Bulletproof Vest

Illustration for article titled Heres The Cutest Police Dog Wearing The Tiniest Bulletproof Vest

Nine-Week-Old German Shepard "Tuco," ironically named after Breaking Bad villain Tuco Salamanca, doesn't even fit into this doggie-sized bulletproof vest yet (squee!), but I bet he'll fit into your heart.Look at those little paws!

Someday he might rip your arm of for daring to defy authority, or tear your car to shreds because you haven't vacuumed it since your roommate ashed his joint on the floormat. But for now the interrogations end at "Whoozagoodboy?!"

Boston Magazine says Tuco is owned by Boston Police dog handler Troy Caisey; "a 22-year veteran of the force who has trained more than 350 canines." This little pup will join the ranks of the department's equally adorable and terrifying K-9 Unit (sniffin' ass and findin' grass since 1963!) if he passes police training.


The photo above will be in the 2015 Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog calendar, which includes pictures of police pups from all over the state by photographer Jonathan Kozowky. You can get it here for $10, which Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog will use to "support Massachusetts police dogs, helping provide vests, essential equipment, training, & dogs."

The picture was shared to Reddit on Monday, which responded with an informative analysis of what a Dog might sound like with a Boston accent. (Saved you a click: "Baaaahk!")
