The Avon Police Department is looking for the community’s help in choosing the top name for their top dog.

AVON, Colorado — The Avon Police Department (APD) has a new recruit without a name.

The K9 officer is a 4-year-old female Beagle. APD said she joined the department March 23 and is "adjusting to her new role quite well."

APD is asking for help in choosing a name for its newest recruit.

Name suggestions from students at Avon Elementary School have been whittled down to five finalists:

  • Dottie
  • Bagel the Beagle
  • Nova (Avon backwards/new star)
  • Avi (short for Avon)
  • Cubbi (Avon Elementary School mascot)

Vote for your top name suggestion here through Thursday, April 28.

APD said the winning name will be announced Friday, April 29.
