Sweet dreams, best friends... During deployments, dogs and handlers can be together 24/7. They develop bonds they say are often deeper than the handlers have with close family. No wonder so many handlers want to adopt the dogs they've served with.
Mo has already developed a very close bond with his handler. Back in March we introduced Mo, our latest four-legged recruit, on his first day with GMP. Now a few months into his training, he is learning all the skill required to become a fully-fledged operational police dog on the streets of Greater Manchester. Each of our police dogs is assigned its own handler who will accompany them throughout their service
As we mentioned yesterday, the incomparable bond between military dog and handler knows no borders. We love this great photo of an Israeli Defense Forces handler and his best friend. (Thank you K9 Heroes for posting this!)
