Staffordshire police show off cute new recruit Isla

Comments (0)

MEET Staffordshire Police's latest recruit! The latest latest addition to the Dog Support Unit is Isla, an eight-month-old German Shepherd puppy, recently donated to the force from charity SDUKI.

She has settled into a temporary home with Sgt Rich Cope, who is spending plenty of time playing with her, and has begun familiarising her with the routine of a police dog and getting her used to the environment she will be working in when she's older.

Although too young to begin any serious police dog training, Isla is already showing potential as she has quickly grasped some of the essential obedience commands.

As Isla develops and matures she will be assessed and if suitable will begin her police dog training course at around 12 months and be matched to a suitable handler.
