Max made honorary police dog Munch on Saturday after serving as the first officer to adopt one since the beginning of the city’s ban on pit bulls in 1997.
On behalf of the police force, officers wearing blue shirts emblazoned with ‘The City of Toronto’ began carrying out the ceremony.
‘We’re excited that The City of Toronto is joining the dog community as one of the first law enforcement forces to adopt our new breed,’ said Capt. Kerry Schmidt, executive officer of the police canine unit.
After a long list of accolades and awards, a Toronto police dog became the first official canine in the city. Pictured is Munch on Saturday
Munch, who is now a police dog, has since become known as the ‘toy police dog,’ the Toronto Sun reported on Friday.
Munch was adopted by Sgt. Mark Gomes at the command post of the canine unit in the 한게임 바카라city’s York Region neighbourhood last April.
The dogs also are named for Toronto officers who served as volunteers while on duty on the day of the ban.
