Police dog finds missing mom and baby during his first shift on the force
A newly-inducted police dog in the U.K. has already set the bar high for the other dogs in the Dyfed-Powys Police K-9 unit. During his first day on the force, a German Shepherd named Max found a mother and her 1-year-old child, who had been missing for two days, according to the police department.
Max was leading his human handler, Police Constable Peter Lloyd, when he discovered the missing mother and baby in a remote area of Powys, a preserved area of Wales. Lloyd then spotted the woman on the edge of a ravine, waving for help, Dyfed-Powys Policesaid in a press release.
“The woman had not been seen or spoken to for two days, which was out of character, and her phone wasn’t working, so naturally concern for her safety was high,” Inspector Jonathan Rees-Jones said in the release.
