Prince trains weekly, and that’s where his handler sees a difference between the outgoing pup and his older counterparts.
“They take their time to make calculated moves and are very quiet,” Scott says. “Once Prince gets the scent, he is off like a rocket and doesn’t stop ‘talking’ the entire time.”
While Prince loves his job, he loves people even more.
“He is hands down the friendliest dog I’ve met,” Scott notes. “He weighs almost 100 pounds, but he thinks he’s a small lap dog and would be happy to curl up in anyone’s lap for hours.”
And that love is returned by Scott and his family, who see Prince as more than just a police pup.
“Owning a bloodhound was not something we would have foreseen happening,” Scott says. “But now, we can’t imagine life without him – or his drool, which can be flung across the dinner table without warning, clinging to the wall like a high-water mark.”
