It wasn't long after Azul was rescued that he proved himself to be a particularly skilled companion. Walteros, who often travels by motorcycle, even taught the dog to ride comfortably with him.
Having many friends in the police department, Walteros decided to outfit Azul with a little patrol cop uniform to wear when they were out and about, in honor of them. And in so doing, the dog quickly became a friendly ambassador for local law enforcement.
"It was something they did not expect," Walteros says. "They were astonished by his dedication to the institution."
Naturally, the police welcomed him into the team as their mascot.
