Nottinghamshire police are looking to recruit young Germanshepherd dogs to join the fight against crime.
The dogs, which can be male or female, will be assessed to check their suitability. If successful they may become an essential part of tracking down criminals.
If the donated dogs fail to pass the tests the force can return them to their owner or rehome them with a suitable family.
PC Leigh Whitehead said: “There may be members of the public who have a young German shepherd who they would consider donating to us to train up as a police dog.
