Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner introduces his new dog, Scout, to reporters during a news conference on upcoming Medicare deadlines. Scout, adopted by Mr. Finkbeiner and his wife, Amy, just before Christmas, was trained by Assistance Dogs of America in Swanton. However, Scout has arthritis, which precludes him from being used as an assistance dog, the mayor said.
