Yes!  But, not THAT Gronk....

According to, the Athol, Mass PD just added a one year old German Shepherd to their K-9 program.  His name?  Gronk!

Athol Police Chief Russell Kleber wanted to name the pooch after a Boston sports figure, and one that had a connection to the town.  In February, Gronk made a charity appearance in Athol.  So, it made perfect sense to name him Gronk!

Best of luck to Officer Gronk!
