And the new paw enforcement recruits are ...

Five puppies visited The Children's Hospital at Westmead today when the NSW Police Dog Unit announced the names of their 12 new canine recruits, as chosen by patients.

The nine male and three female puppies were born as part of the ‘Y’ Litter. Following a Facebook call out asking for name suggestions starting with the letter ‘Y’, our patients researched the names and made the final decisions.

Yogi, Yoda , Yin, Yule , Yoko, Yoyo, Yasha, Yazza, Yap, Yoshi, Yetta and Yang will now commence their training to become Police dogs.
