Police help fund guide dog puppy
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.”
