South Yorkshire Police's latest recruit, police dog Dottie, is trained to search for explosives

Dottie and Ryan graduated from training school on April 14 after an eight-week course, and immediately put their new skills to the test attending the World Snooker Championships held in Sheffield the following day.

Ryan said: “Me and PD Dottie have spent just over the past 12 months together. Before starting our training we got to know each other; a strong relationship and bond with your dog is essential for a successful partnership.

“During our training PD Dottie excelled in everything that was asked of her, she has great enthusiasm for working and I am looking forward to our career together.”
