WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Massachusetts State Police shared a story of helping a preschooler overcome her fear of animals after troopers visited the Westfield Boys & Girls Club to read a book. Titled 'GIRL'S BEST FRIEND' on the Massachusetts State Police Facebook page, Trooper Deshawn Brown along with Trooper Chad Tata and his partner, crisis response dog Luna visited the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield on Tuesday to read a book to a class of preschool students. The teacher told the troopers before they entered that a girl in the class, Lorelei, was bitten by a neighbor's dog two months ago which has caused her to be scared of all animals, especially dogs.
