NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Connecticut State Police’s K-9 Tobi will receive a bullet protective vest within eight to ten weeks.

He is a German shepherd and will turn two in August. K-9 Tobi is trained in all patrol functions including tracking, building searches, evidence recovery, apprehension, obstacles and obedience.
