TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A new officer has joined the Terre Haute Police Department. The catch? This one is on four legs!

Adamson says Dax is a "result of our generous community and we are thankful."

Arie served seven years alongside handler Sgt. Justin Sears.

Arie died earlier this year due to medical complications.
