A CUMBRIA police dog has given birth to a litter of puppies.
Operational drug dection dog Millie, had ten springer spaniel puppies yesterday.
She is the proud mum of five dogs and five bitches. Mother and puppies are all doing well and are healthy.
Sergeant Mark Yielder, from the Cumbria Constabulary Dog Unit, said: “We are all delighted with the news that Millie has gave birth to the new puppies.
“The puppies will be brought up to the Dogs Unit at Police Headquarters and will rest in our purpose made puppy kennel. The kennel is fitted with heated lamps and whelping beds so the puppies will be as comfortable as possible.”
