A photo of a budding member of the Boston Police Department’s K-9 force sent a shockwave of ‘awws’ across the Internet Monday.

The photo, which was posted to Reddit, is from Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog, a non-profit that helps provide bulletproof vests, essential equipment, training, and purchase of dogs for police and law enforcement K-9 programs throughout the state.

“As K-9s are trained to give up their lives to protect their partners and all of us, we believe it is every bit as important to protect them,’’ according to www.mavestadog.org.

Boston Magazine reported that the German Shepherd puppy’s name is Tuco, named for the volatile “Breaking Bad’’ character named Tuco Salamanca.
