Meme about Orange County K-9 named Trump may spark policy change

Facebook page Cop Humor posts meme saying 'Atta boy, Trump!'

The Orange County Sheriff's Office may tell its deputies to stop naming K-9s after real people after a dog named Trump was featured in a Facebook meme.

ORLANDO, Fla. - A Florida sheriff's agency may tell its deputies to stop naming K-9s after real people after a dog named Trump was featured in a Facebook meme.

The Orlando Sentinel reports a picture showing an Orange County sheriff's patrol car which has a decal featuring the dog's name and picture was posted Wednesday by the Facebook page "Cop Humor."

The text overlaid on the image says "Atta boy, Trump! Making a difference."

The pro-law enforcement conservative group's meme had 1,200 likes on Friday.

The sheriff's office confirmed it has a dog named Trump, which was purchased in March 2018.

In a statement, the agency said K-9 names are left to their human partners and there is not a policy against naming after people.

"We are aware that this is being shared on social media," Orange County Sheriff's Office officials said. "In the future, the Sheriff’s Office may consider directing Deputies to avoid naming their K-9 partners after real people."
