Boston Police Puppy is This Week’s Hero of the Internet

Bad guys better beware–or you’ll have Tuco at your heels!

The nine-week-old German Shepherd puppy was unaware of the effect he had on thousands when a photo of him wearing an oversized police dog vest appeared on Facebook.

Massachusetts Vest-a-Dog provides bulletproof vests for police dogs and Tuco is the star of May in their 2015 calendar. Of course, it wasn’t long before Tuco was making cuteness waves on Reddit, and then began prancing all over the internet–and you can see why.

Though the puppy was called Batman in the Facebook post, Tuco’s trainer, Troy Caisey, confirmed to Boston Magazine that the pup was named after Breaking Bad character, Tuco Salamanca.

Best of luck finishing you’re training, Tuco. We’re sure you’ll be curbing crime in no time!

Boston Police Department’s K-9 unit has a new member, and he’s going to kill those criminals with cuteness. See more pictures here!
