StatePolice3011.jpg

NEW HAVEN — Under amicable circumstances, 7-year-old Vincent acts more like a  teddy bear than an imposing 70-pound police dog. He leans against you for more pats and gives you a syrupy stare that he hopes will convince you to toss a ball for him. He’s a mixture of Winnie the Pooh and Fred Rogers.
