The Cheshire County Sheriff’s Office welcomes its newest deputy to the force. Deputy Forest, a twelve-week Golden Retriever puppy, was born after his mother was rescued/seized during animal neglect and cruelty case in Bradford, NH. More than 100 dogs were taken from a home by the Bradford Police Department during the investigation. The puppy was offered to the Sheriff’s Office by the Pope Memorial SPCA in Concord, NH one of the sites taking care of the seized dogs to serve as a comfort dog. The puppy “Deputy Forest” will serve our community, and his primary duties include visiting schools, the court, public events, and interacting with kids and adults of all ages. The interactions have been positive, both by adults and kids that have already met Deputy Forest.

We have been very grateful for the donations by local businesses in support of Deputy Forest.

Upon completion of his training, Deputy Forest will be assigned as the Sheriff’s Office Community Outreach Deputy.
