WOODS CROSS, Utah -- "Spot" isn't your average K-9 officer.

Police dogs are usually big enough to chase down criminals, but "Spot" is a different kind of police dog.

He's a 3.5 pound terrier.

The police department in Utah that adopted "Spot" said he's a great morale booster.

He might not do much more than chase lasers and take naps, but he's snuggled his way into the heart of Chief Greg Butler.

The department said "Spot" is just a great addition to their team.
