Northwest Florida

MILTON, Fla. (WKRG) — UPDATE (9/11/20): The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office newest K-9 now has a name.

The sheriff’s office held a contest to name the new pup. After looking through more than 8,000 entries, they chose the name “Nez,” which was submitted by Jo Morgan.

Nez happens to be French for the word “nose”, which is the reason Bloodhounds are so good at what they do.

Original story

The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office has four new paws on patrol and you can help name him.

A post made Tuesday on social media asks for the public’s input on naming the eight-week-old male bloodhound.

SRSO says name suggestions are due by noon on Friday, September 11. If your name suggestion is chosen for the pup the department will coordinate a play date.

The two other k-9 officers in SRSO are names Copper and Zinc but the suggestions do not have to relate to them.
