Crime Dog House Coming to Knightdale

Posted June 10, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— A tough new dog is coming to the Triangle, and he's bringing his house with him. The dog is McGruff, the crime-fighting dog, and he's coming to take a bite out of crime and help keep children safe.

North Carolina's very first McGruff House opened Tuesday in Knightdale. The theme is based on McGruff the "crime dog" and law enforcement mascot.

The house is a safe place where kids can go if they are lost or feel threatened.
