Meet Towson University’s newest hire: A comfort dog

January 31, 2024

Towson University has a new four-legged friend on campus: A yet-to-be-named chocolate Labrador retriever puppy who will work as a comfort dog with the university’s police department. The dog will “offer emotional support and companionship as part of TU’s community-oriented approach to public safety,” the university said in a news release. The dog’s handler, Jafar Taru, is a corporal with the Towson University Police Department. He has another dog at home, a bichon. The new puppy is the first one Taru has worked with professionally, though.
