POLICE DOG UPDATE
DAMASCUS, Va. -

There is growing support for a former police officer looking to keep his old partner, a narcotic police dog named Emmy.

The Damascus town council voted to sell Emmy and is accepting bids. The minimum bid is $3,000.

You may remember, her handler, Justin Miller, resigned at the Damascus Police Department and is raising money in hopes of keeping Emmy. As of 7:00 p.m. Thursday, Miller has raised $3,900 to buy Emmy.

We’re told the bid will be open for 30 to 60 days.
