POLK COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

Polk County Sheriff's office welcomed a new puppy in its K9 unit, according to the sheriff's Facebook page. The new bloodhound is a brother to Tampa Police dog Blu or the "dog with a blog," who joined the force a few days ago.

The Jimmy Ryce Center for Victims of Predatory Abduction bought the dog for PCSO, according to a Facebook post. This dog will help track missing children and endangered adults.

The newest K9 deputy is a 10-month-old male, but doesn't have a name yet.

You can help name the puppy on the Polk sheriff's Facebook page.  For the name contest here
