Once fully grown and trained, police dogs make a formidable addition to the force that none of us would like to be on the wrong side of. At this stage, the only danger these furry new recruits pose is by causing a cute overload. So, how would you like one in your house?
West Midlands Police is currently on the lookout for volunteers to home its latest litter of puppies for at least 12 months, and help get them accustomed to the everyday happenings of family life.
As part of their their training, the police pups need to be introduced to common sights and sounds of household appliances, as well as taken on regular walks to become familiar with traffic, people and other people. At this age the dogs cannot be left alone for longer than three hours at a time.
While anyone with the time can apply to look after the puppies during their early life, volunteers would need to live in or around the West Midlands and have a secure garden. All necessary equipment, food and veterinary care will be paid for by the force.
Interested in becoming a West Midlands Police puppy carer and help prepare them for a life dishing out ruff justice (sorry)? Contact the WMP Dogs Unit on 0121 626 8202 between 8am-4pm, Monday to Friday. Alternatively, you can email the unit at firstname.lastname@example.org
