Just about to Close the Curtain on the ‘BPD Has a New Dog But He Needs a Name’ Contest: So, the primary is over and the final selection process is upon us. We asked you to help us name our newest furry, four-legged recruit, an incredibly cute 9-week old Belgian Shepherd male puppy, and you certainly went above and beyond the call of duty. For all the suggestions we received, we – quite honestly - can’t thank you enough. We asked for names and you delivered more than we expected. In fact, over 20,000 names were submitted and all of them were well conceived, well thought out and strong. So, the obvious question: what’s the next step? The BPD’s head K-9 trainer, Officer Troy Caisey, who will have the final say on the final name, has asked us to provide him with the list of the top 10 name suggestions. But, before he makes the final call from the list below, we’d love to give you one last chance to influence his decision. The final name will be announced later this week. To vote – visit us on Facebook or tag us on Twitter at @bostonpolice.
The finalist’s names are as follows:
