Having a ruff day? Here’s some adorable news to cheer you up.
In a special ceremony held on November 20 by the Police Dog Base of the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Public Security, six four-month-old dogs were decorated with badges, colored collars and uniforms, marking their official admission into the police force.
Earlier this year, the Police Dog Base began collaborating with Sinogene, private pet-cloning company, in researching how to retain genes from excellent police dogs in order to reduce training time and increase breeding efficiency, as cited by Beijing Daily.
Through Sinogene’s official WeChat account, it was revealed that the genetic samples were obtained from two exemplary K9 crew members, the Belgian Malinois Sijiding and Arui. Sijiding is noted for outstanding intelligence and searching skills, while Arui, recruited from abroad, has particularly strong attack skills.
The young pups, born in August, have exhibited abilities on par with six-month-old dogs, demonstrating focus, courage and aggression during training. The base will undertake strict training and close monitoring of the recruits in order to provide further analysis and character research for future training effort.
We hope they’ll see more paw-sitive results... (Sorry, we had to.)
