– A police dog named Winston won the South Yorkshire Police’s Animal of the Year contest.
– The dog won thru a public vote.
– This dog was responsible for sniffing out…
The dog is a springer spaniel and won the top spot through a public vote. The doggo is the partner of police dog handler PC Lee Schofield. Accordingly, Winston became a sniffer doggo in the year 2014. Aside from the cocaine and guns that the police dog found, he also sniffed out thousands of money hidden in a cellar and shell casings in murder and shooting investigations.
Winston reportedly loves his work and the only reward he asks for after a hard day’s work is a tennis ball. The police dog handler hopes that the dog would work for more years and solve more cases. Operational Support Unit’s Superintendent Paul McCurry presented the award to Winston and his handler on Wednesday. McCurry noted, “I am pleased to award PD Winston with his trophy today. Congratulations to not only PD Winston but also PC Schofield, who Winston takes his direction and command from, excellent teamwork.”
