LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The newest member of the Lufkin High School Police Department will have a nice, cozy home thanks to LHS students.

According to a press release, students from the school’s Ag Mechanics class, Horticulture class, and other student volunteers built a doghouse for the new canine.

The press release said Officer Paul Jackson has been training with the canine who will soon be on duty and employed with Lufkin ISD as a canine officer.

The dog will be with Officer Jackson 24/7 and will visit all of the campuses in the district.

To make the dog’s transition an easier one, students have built a one-of-a-kind doghouse complete with living quarters and a covered porch area.
