Today City Commissioners approved the purchase of a four legged team member for the Dothan Fire Department.
The K-9 will be trained to sniff out fire starting accelerants.
Battalion Chief Chris Etheredge says the dog will take their "arson task force" to a new level.
The dog is a three year old golden Labrador named Jasper.
He will be trained this month in Birmingham with a Dothan Fire Department handler.
