We know they’re consummate professionals and they’re just as much members of the police as any human officer, but police dogs can still be seriously cute (we’re not saying human officers can’t be, but police dogs are dogs so they get bonus points!)
And Police in Scotland’s newest recruit is just about the cutest police dog we’ve seen yet:
We’re sure you’ll all love waking up to this little cutie-pie – Police Scotland’s newest recruit, police puppy Bodie!Seven week old Bodie is settling in with his new handler and looking forward to his new life at Police Scotland.Happy weekend everyone!
Our Dog Unit staff have many years experience in breeding and developing puppies specifically for police dog work and the puppy’s health and welfare is our top priority.Like all police forces UK wide, we assess all our puppies at an early age to ensure they have all the qualities required of a working police dog.There are some very well structured breeding programmes throughout the UK that are specifically designed to produce puppies with police work in mind and all our puppies are carefully selected from these.
Puppies are routinely selected when they are between 7 and 8 weeks old. Experience has shown us that this is the optimum age for the puppy to make a smooth and successful transition on to our puppy development programme.
This programme is structured to prepare the puppy for life as an operational Police dog serving the community and keeping people safe.
