Boston Police Department K-9 Viggo is all grown up and was recently photographed for the May/June edition of Working Dog Magazine with BPD head trainer, Officer Troy Caisey. We first introduced you to Viggo two years ago when he was a puppy in need of a name and, with the help of the community's hundreds of entries, Officer Caisey chose the valiant name Viggo. Since then, Viggo has trained diligently for the BPD as a dual purpose Explosive Ordinance Detection and Patrol K-9. He was most recently certified by the BPD for bomb and firearm detection, as well as earning ATF certification for explosive detection. Viggo was also at the Boston Marathon finish line this year, keeping spectators and runners safe before and during the race. When he turns two years old this June, he will go for his National Patrol Dog certification with handler Caisey at the helm. Keep up the great work, Viggo, and stay safe!
