A stray dog has landed a job with the police…and is proving a big hit with ladies who love the uniform.
The adorable schnauzer pup was a down and out in the Suba district of Bogota, Colombia until he was saved from the streets by kind-hearted military reservist, Nicolas Alejandro Walteros.
Keen to put the hound on the straight and narrow, Nicolas turned to his friends in the police force who were more than happy to adopt the dog as their new recruit.
The canine cop, called Azul, can now be found patrolling the streets on paw, horse and bike while sporting his very own tiny hi vis doggy uniform, complete with cap.
Azul has even been known to take to the skies in a police helicopter when duty calls and has also been pictured during all important police training.
However, the professional pup still makes time to stop for pictures – posing with ladies who love his uniform and for selfies with ‘the boys’ while off duty.
Nicolas said: “Azul loves being part of the police force. He’s a very dedicated dog.”
