It's Official. Blu the Bloodhound has a blog - yes a dog with a blog

OK everyone, it is official. TPD’s newest “recruit” has a name and a blog….yes he’s a dog with a blog!  Blu the Bloodhound went home with his new handler yesterday, K-9 Officer Dave Savage.  Officer Savage is new to the K-9 team, so Blu and Dave will be learning the ropes together.  Stay tuned to Blu's blog for updates on their training and of course the growing pains that go along with learning new tricks as a K-9 team.  We'll also "dig in" to some much deserved puppy playtime.  From his first day here with his new TPD family to his first day on the street catching the bad guys, you’ll see it on his blog. 

As a side note, he’ll be making his debut with the media on Monday, July 1st at 1 p.m…..but shhhhh, we haven't told the media yet.  We need to start working on his “bark”ing points so his interviews go well.

These are his first pictures in his new home.  Officer Savage is getting him used to walking on a leash.  Over the next couple of weeks, the team will head out to as many places as possible to get little Blu used to new sounds and places.  After all, we need a confident dog to chase those bad guys.

Officer Savage and Blu are going to take the next few days to get to know each other, but check back next week for more updates

Making Friends with the officers


  1. His adorable........i can't believe i am actual following this puppy :) lol

  2. He has no idea how loved and RESPECTED he is already. Be safe Blu, and you too Officer Savage. Thank you for your commitment to train this cute little guy so he can sniff out the bad stuff and keep the citizens of Tampa Bay safe!

    1. P.S. Being a former Tampa gal, I have proudly added you to my Blog Roll. Love you guys and enjoy keeping up with you on Facebook! Happy blogging! :)

  3. He is soooooooooo freakin adorable. Blu is just absolutely awesome. Can't wait to see what a fine young fur boy he will be.

  4. So so cute and cuddly. He will be so handsome when he grows up. I happen to love his name because we have an Australian Shepherd named Blue. I look forward to following along with Blu as he grows up.

  5. Blu is a cool name! He is definitely a precious thing. Me and my kids will enjoy seeing his adventures:)

  6. What an adorable dog! I have 3 hounds of my own, but this guy is something else. Looking forward to watching him grow up and into his new role!

  7. Great idea! Always good to know a dog's perspective in fighting crime as well as seeing his greatest adventures that lies ahead!!
