The newest K9 to join the Rapid City, South Dakota Police Department now has snow boots to help him while on duty.

To keep warm this winter, the K9 named Jary was given dog boots, which are rubber boots with traction pads.

But Jary wasn’t immediately sure how to walk in his new shoes!

The night before Jary got his boots, their other K9 had a long trek through the snow chasing a person who bailed out during a stolen car pursuit.

Recognizing the freezing temperatures, Senior Officer Matt Hower, decided to get him equipped with snow boots.

It took some time.. but Jary has since adjusted to the boots pretty well.
