RCMP are asking the public for help – but this time it’s not to catch suspects or solve crime.
Instead, Mounties are looking to children across the country to help name 13 German shepherd puppies who will one-day serve as police dogs for the RCMP, as part of the force’s annual Name the Puppy contest.
This year, the names must start with the letter “N.”
“B.C. kids have been winners in the past and those selected often get the opportunity to meet a dog team in their community,” said RCMP dog handler Cpl. Mike Jordan in a news release.
The rules of the contest are:
- Puppy names must have no more than two syllables and nine letters
- Contestants must live in Canada and be four to 14 years old.
- Only one entry per child
The 13 children whose names are selected will each receive a laminated photo of the pup they named, a plush dog named Justice and an RCMP water bottle. The deadline for the contest is March 25.
