Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service welcomed a new investigation dog to the team last month.
The five-month old black Labrador has been recruited to serve Herts as apprentice to the current fire investigation dog, Regs.
Following a staff competition by Hertfordshire’s fire investigation dogs’ sponsors Computacenter, they named the pup Thor after judged on a panel voted for the name.
Clare Rafferty, head of corporate events at Computacenter, said: “Thor is a great choice for the new fire investigation dog. Thor, a superhero, was known to protect both gods and humans against the forces of evil using his deadly weapon the iron hammer, but in this case, Thor will be using his nose.”
“We at Computacenter are very proud of our long-standing partnership with the fire and rescue service and can’t wait to watch Thor grow into our very own superhero.”
