After the death of a French police search dog named Diesel during an apartment raid following the Paris terror attacks, Russia is offering a helping paw. 

A spokeswoman for the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs posted photos of an Alsatian dog named Dobrynya on Instagram. Russia says it plans to send the pup to replace 7-year-old Diesel as a sign of solidarity with France.

Diesel's death prompted variations of the hashtag #JeSuisUnChien, meaning "I am a dog" in French, as Twitter users offered their sympathies. 

Currently, Dobrynya is in Moscow. Once the pup is properly screened, he'll be sent to France where he'll become the newest member of the force. (Video via RT
