BARBOURSVILLE, WV (WOWK) – The Barboursville Police Department has welcomed a new member.

Meet “Ruger”. According to a release from the police department, Ruger is the newest addition to the police department’s K-9 Unit.

Ruger will be joining another four-legged member of the unit, Royce to help sniff out crime and missing persons.

The Barboursville Police Department says they received a lot of suggestions on names for the new member,which made it difficult to choose. 

However, the name Ruger came from a Barboursville student who police say perked their ears when the student suggested that “Ruger and Royce” go well together.
