Paw patrol: Meet Nottinghamshire Police’s latest recruit


Twelve-week-old Percy joined the Nottinghamshire Police Dog Section, based at Sherwood Lodge in Arnold, earlier this week.

Percy is a black Springer Spaniel and will be trained up as a sniffer dog. As you can see from the photos, he loves exploring, taking in the new smells…and chewing lots along the way.

A police spokesman said: He [Percy] will start his training in about 12 months’ time and we will of course keep you updated on his journey. But for now, he’s making the most of chewing anything and everything and being too cute to be told off!”
