New Consolation puppy wants names, Middlesex DA opens competitors



WOBURN, MA – Middlesex prosecutors are seeking help from children across the county in naming a new comfort pup to add to the team.

The small male Black English Lab is slated to join the Middlesex prosecutor’s office in April, where he will train for several months. Once on the job, he will work with staff and police across the county to promote wellbeing, the district attorney said.

“Dogs’ benefits after a stressful or traumatic situation are well documented, ranging from less anxiety and stress to more self-confidence,” District Attorney Marian Ryan said in a statement.

This is a first for the prosecutor.

Children wishing to submit a name for the puppy have until April 3rd to submit it here on the Middlesex District Attorney’s website.

According to the prosecutor, the names must have one or two syllables.

The winner receives a prize and a visit to the new puppy, provided that this is possible for this child taking into account the COVID-19 safety protocols, according to the DA office.

The winner will be announced in April when the puppy officially enters the office.
