RETIRED POLICE DOG TAYLOR
#RPDTaylor is a male German Shepherd who served in Gwent Police between 2015 and 2021 as a general-purpose and firearm support dog.
He came from the West Midlands Police puppy programme and trained in Gwent with his handler just prior to turning one.
#RPDTaylor enjoyed all aspects of his work, but loved his work with firearms teams and tracking, he always had his nose to the ground. He was very successful at police dog trials winning various awards and qualified for national trials in Surrey where he competed.
#RPDTaylor was eventually retired due to arthritis and suspected cruciate problem. He settled easily into home life with his handler and #RPDBuddy, who are best of friends. He still has plenty of excited energy when going out for walks, but also loves a cwtch at home and all the comforts.
