Adorable police puppies in desperate need of volunteer this Christmas
Animal lovers are needed to open their homes and take in adorable police puppies.
West Midlands Police are searching for a volunteer pup fosterer in Coventry to nurture a future law-enforcing doggo.
If you love paw and order, it might be the role for you.
The force’s breeding programme is one of the most prolific in the UK, producing more than 100 future police dogs a year, Coventry Live reported.
West Midlands Police said: "Our programme holds circa 50 breeding females of a variety of breeds and aims to produce over 100 puppies each year".
While they are newborn pups, the pooches need to be kept with their mum at the station until they are eight weeks old.
But after two months, the fosterer comes in, as the puppies will need caring for from this age until they are 14 months old.
The four legged friends will need to have doggy training during this time – so their carer will need to be on hand to take them to and from their sessions.
And every so often, the pups will also be brought back to the training centre and kept in a kennel for a number of days, so they can be trained there also.

West Midlands Police said: “The Puppy Development Programme relies on the support of volunteers to assist with caring for, training & developing our puppies/young dogs.
“Each puppy/young dog attends regular training sessions at our Dog Training Centre in Balsall Common, which relies on our volunteers making the puppies/young dogs available & transporting them to & from our Dog Training Centre.
“As a Puppy Fosterer you will be required to care for a puppy from 8 weeks old until 14 months old, following a structured Puppy Development Programme where both you & the dog are assessed at regular intervals.”
The role might be unpaid, the force said, but volunteers get to be a part of the “police family” in return for their work.
