Maine’s First 911 Dispatch Comfort Dog Turns One
Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear Baxter.
Did you sing that? Of course you did.
Baxter just turned one. And Baxter is Maine’s first 911 Dispatch comfort dog. It is now official. And no, you can't call 911 to talk to Baxter.
We’ve waited long enough. Time for some cute photos of Baxter at work.
I think he enjoys his new bed and certainly some much needed nap time. Actually don’t we all wish we had a bed at work and could nap more than we already do.
Baxter works for the Maine Department of Public Service Communications. Dogs at work are great, but Baxter isn’t just a dog that hangs around at the water cooler and looks cute. This is work
Nice close up Baxter. Looking good.
If you have a legit emergency and have to call 911, that is where Baxter works. The Maine Department of Public Service Communications.
And if you want to work there too, they do have occasional openings you might want to look into. Check here.
Baxter would make a great co-worker, right?
Baxter attending his first training in his new job. What a perfect class for him to take. Dispatch Behavior Health Training.
Baxter is a chocolate lab and works for the Department’s 3 Emergency Communication Centers in Augusta, Bangor and Houlton. Baxter is part of the family there to provide daily support for first responders, and also the community as well. And now that birthday number one has passed, time to get to work.
But not before another photo
Baxter turned one Thursday April 6th
Happy Birthday, and congrats on the new gig.
