The 19th Judicial District debuted its first facility dog Wednesday in Judge Mike R. Jones’ courtroom. Orson, the two-year-old black lab/golden retriever mix, was specifically bred and trained from birth to serve those with special needs. In his first assignment, Orson accompanied and comforted a nine-year-old victim testifying in a child rape trial. He has become the third facility dog in Tennessee, although Clarksville is the first to receive a dog that works primarily from the District Attorney's Office. The Leaf Chronicle has more.
