Dante was born on December 16, 2010, and adopted from an Essex, CT resident trooper in June of 2011; both his parents were decorated service dogs, and his lineage carries a strong record of public service. He’s a purebred German Shephard who loves the company of his humans as well as walking, hiking, and guarding the CMS office. His passion is fetching his one and only toy, the indestructible Kong, which never leaves his side when he’s in the yard. It’s with great sadness that Dante crossed the rainbow bridge in September of 2020. He is missed and in our hearts forever.
