A charity calendar has been launched to celebrate the work of retired Lancashire Police dogs.
The 2014 production is the work of a team from the Retired Lancashire Police Dogs Benevolent Fund and features every working dog in Lancashire, which will shortly need the help of the charity to find it a retirement home.
PC Leanne Mankowski said: “Most of the Lancashire police dogs retire to their handlers, who then have to take over the financial responsibility.
“In some cases dogs are retired at a young age due to illness or injuries sustained and then veterinary and drugs bills can be very heavy and cause heart-searching decisions for a handler who may well have more than one police dog.”
The calendar is available to order now on www.retiredpolicedogs.co.uk or from Sheila Maw on (01254) 823136 for £7.
