Unwanted German Shepherd dogs needed

Police are looking for unwanted German Shepherd dogs. Hertfordshire Constabulary has just mailed the site this news release.

GERMAN Shepherds are being sought by Hertfordshire Constabulary.

Officers in the Dog Section at Police Headquarters in Welywn Garden City are actively trying to find German Shepherds aged between 11 and 20 months and want to hear from anyone who thinks they can help.

The dogs will undergo a three-month training programme before graduating as fully qualified police dogs, after which each dog enjoys a varied working lifestyle and lives with its handler in their home.

Dog Handler Matthew Keys said: “Most of our dogs are given to us by the public, whose generosity allows us to keep the county provided with police dog cover. We are keen to hear from anyone who may have a German Shepherd or a similar breed around this age and feel that for whatever reason they can no longer keep it or that it is too lively at home to be a pet.”

Anyone who thinks they can help with the Dog’s Section plea is asked to contact Keith Bowley on telephone 01707 354 428.
