Po­lice help fund guide dog puppy

Bangor Mail - - YOUR COMMUNITY -

NORTH Wales Po­lice of­fi­cers and staff have raised more than £3,000 to help sup­port a guide dog puppy through his first year of train­ing.

The cash boost means the force was also given the task of nam­ing the puppy – and the young black labrador will now be known as Bobby.

Over the past two years of­fi­cers and staff have par­tic­i­pated in the “Guide Dogs Name a Puppy – Change a Life” scheme and have raised £3,130 that will as­sist with food, train­ing and ve­teri­nary bills.

Bobby was born on Oc­to­ber 12 and has now been placed with his puppy walker, who will start teach­ing him the skills that he will need as a fu­ture guide dog.

Deputy Chief Con­sta­ble Gareth Pritchard said: “We are de­lighted to hear of Bobby’s ar­rival.”
