The Franklin Police Department is getting some new comfort.

K-9 Miller, a rescue Labrador retriever, will be paired with officer Kristin Tracy as a comfort dog after training with Hero Pups. Miller received his name in honor of the many mills that made up Franklin’s industrial past.

“We are really excited to welcome K-9 Miller to our Police Department. Our new Comfort Dog program is something that will have an enormous impact on our city and on our community members,” Tracy said.

Miller will be joining the force as the second comfort dog in the state and is being trained now by Laura Barker and her daughter from Hero Pups, a Stratham nonprofit that places dogs with veterans and first responders. Miller will end up with Tracy as his primary care provider.
