Search is on to rehome police dog Blakey

NORTHUMBRIA Police are looking for a new home for a German Shepherd called Blakey.

The 17-month old female was gifted to the force several months ago but is not brave enough to be come a police dog.

Blakey is loving and affectionate with people she knows but is nervous of strangers, and so the force are looking to find her a special home.

She has lots of energy and loves long walks and has lived with a male German Shepherd, but is generally not good around other dogs.

Northumbria Police are looking for an adult only home with an understanding of the breed and dog training experience.

Potential owners can contact the Northumbria Police Kennels on 101 ext 68699
