Tarheel Canine will be providing a trained explosives dog to the Baltimore City Police Department on December 14 2009. The funds for this purchase were graciously provided by the Quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger through his charitable foundation.
It just so happens that I have been a fan of the Steelers since first getting cable TV at my childhood home in Monticello, NY which was just an hour or so away from the NY/PA state line. We were fortunate to get the cable station out of Scranton PA, and so I began watching the Steelers every sunday. It is a huge thrill to be able to provide ths dog to Baltimore City with a grant from the quarterback of my favorite team!
