Police officers are offering an insight into the daily lives of tiny future police dogs.
Canine development officer, Paul Glennon, has been giving updates on potential future service dogs online
The Devon and Cornwall Police Dog’s Twitter are showing off the adorable new pups that were only a few weeks ago.
Paul’s own personal dog, Ella, gave birth to a litter of nine puppies which will be known in the force as ‘litter G’.
Out of the nine pups, two are male and the remaining seven are bitches.
Her previous F litter had 6 dogs graduate from their police puppy training school at the end of last year and are now on their way to becoming service dogs.
Now, we are getting to see the next litter which will hold future police dogs as they grow, explore and learn with their mum.
The daily videos and photos have gained a lot of popularity on Twitter with hundreds of people liking, retweeting and asking Paul a series of questions on the new pups.
Many people have taken to praising the dog mum Ella on her natural maternal instincts to her adorable babies.
One person on Twitter said: “Ella is a fantastic mum. The pups are thriving and seem so content. Well done Ella and thank you for sharing these precious moments with us Paul”
Another added: “Ella doing a fantastic job with her babies they all look great and your pupdates are a nice addition to my day.”
Other people are inquisitive on the process of how puppies become police dogs and are asking Paul to share more information on this.
With one person asking what is the success rate of puppies making the grade.
Paul responded: “Out of the 42 we ran on 26 went on to become Police dogs so around 60%”
Paul said in response to a tweet that they are planning on running a competition to name the pups.
