Nash County K9 gets bullet and stab proof vest

NASH A K9 here in the east is getting a wardrobe upgrade to help make her job safer.

Nash County Sheriff's Office K9 Pinka, a narcotics dog, is one of the last dogs to get new body armor.

Pinka will get a bullet and stab proof vest thanks to the charitable donation from a non-profit organization, Vested Interest in K9's.

Vested Interest in K9's provides vests to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement.

Captain Eddie Moore is the K9 supervisor for Nash County Sheriff's Office.

He says K9's are no different than deputies as they get sent out to dangerous situations and the department wants to make sure they stay safe.

Pinka, along with Pebbles, are two of the seven K9's on the force who are the last to receive vests.
