From the Office of DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden:

FORT PAYNE, Ala. We would like to introduce Shadow, DCSO's new therapy dog.  He was born on May 17, 2021 and is a Labradoodle.  He will join SRO Josh Wigley at the DeKalb County Tech School and DeKalb County Youth Services.  "We named him Shadow because we hope and pray that he is a beacon of light and hope for someone during the shadows of darkness", said Deputy Wigley.  Also, Deputy Wigley says, "he is very hopeful that Shadow will be able to forma a bond with kids facing difficult circumstances and hopefully this bond will help the kids to feel more understood ands give them the confidence to face difficulties head on."

We owe a huge thank you to Dr. Peter Strgov of Fort Payne Pediatrics and Tracy Bell of Smart Start Pediatrics for donating Shadow to us.
