Florida police introduce new bloodhound, ask for help choosing her name

BRADENTON, Fla. — A law enforcement agency wants helping naming the newest, smallest member of the force.

On Wednesday, Bradenton police introduced their bloodhound pup over Facebook.

Already paired with her handler Detective Lixa Moyett, this bloodhound will specialize in finding missing children and adults.

“We’re pleased to introduce this precious pup, but she needs a name,” the police department wrote. “Can YOU help us?”

A picture shows the young bloodhound standing atop police equipment.
