Puppies donated by animal care department could become police K-9s

Four puppies born to a dog seized by animal control officials are now on track for a shot at joining the Richmond police department.

The Richmond Times Dispatch reports the four Belgian Malinois puppies are being raised in a collaborative effort between the police department and Richmond Animal Care and Control.

Once the dogs get older, experts will identify whether they would make a good fit for the K-9 unit.  For now, the puppies are being introduced to basic tugging skills and other tasks.
