Name a police drug detection pup
THE long paw of the law has been extended with the birth of seven detection puppies at the NSW Police Force Dog Unit, with Facebook followers are being asked to name them.
The seven Labrador pups, comprising three males and four females, were born to mum ‘Bonnie’ on Friday 1 April and the Dog Unit has decided to let the public choose their names by launching the ‘Police Puppy Poll’ at http://www.facebook.com/nswpoliceforce
Police Dog Unit Commander, Superintendent Mick Goodwin said these Labrador pups had made history, being the first litter of detection dogs born in the unit’s breeding program.
“Keeping with our tradition of naming all litters alphabetically, they will each be given a name starting with the letter A, with those names to be announced later this month," he said.
The pups’ day-to-day progress can also be tracked online with ‘Puppy Cam’, streaming live on the NSW Police Force website at www.police.nsw.gov.au
