HERE are some photos we have been given of the latest addition to the Staffordshire Police Dog Support Unit and we think you'll agree the camera certainly loves her.

Isla is an eight-month-old German Shepherd puppy who was recently donated to the police from the charity SDUKI which have previously donated two other police dogs to the force.

She's settled into her temporary home with Sgt Rich Cope really well.

As well as spending plenty of time playing with her, he's already begun familiarising her with the routine of a police dog and getting her used to the environment she will be working in when she's older.

Although too young to begin any serious police dog training, Isla is already showing potential as she has a very high play drive and has quickly grasped some of the essential obedience commands.

As Isla develops and matures she will be assessed and if suitable will begin her police dog training course at around 12-months and be matched to a suitable handler.

We will keep our fingers crossed for her and keep you posted on her progress.
