Community / Nine week old puppies become latest recruits to Dogs Against Drugs team

TWO new puppies are set to join the local Dogs Against Drugs (DAD) team.

The springer pups will make the move north from Aberdeenshire next week.

The nine week old springer spaniels – one male and one female – have come from a reputable breeder on the mainland, the team said.

Project manager and local dog instructor Michael Coutts said: “DAD are delighted to welcome the two new additions to our organisation, and we look forward to training and developing the dogs in the months ahead.”

They will go to live with two new drugs dog handlers Hannah Anderson and Megan Grant, who are busy receiving training and becoming special constables with Police Scotland.

These two dogs will join the team of dogs already in Shetland, which includes Thor (7), Axel (6) and Oscar (3).

The team of canines have regularly helped police in seizing drugs in Shetland.
