Meet Heidi (Mum)
Heidi was born on the July 4, 2004 and joined Northumbria Police when she was eight weeks old.
She has a slightly different lifestyle to the other working police dogs - living as a house dog with one of Northumbria police's kennel attendants and a ten-year-old German Shepherd called Shane who came through a rehoming programme.
She is bred through working lines. This will be her third and final litter before she retires with her family. Although Heidi is not a trained police dog and more of a pet, she achieved her Kennel Club Good Citizen Gold award which is part of an accredited dog training scheme. She had to get her Bronze and Silver first. She also enjoys doing agility and clicker training, all just for fun.
