The BC RCMP and the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Service (IPDS) is excited to announce a local winner in the recent RCMP Name the Puppy contest for 2020.
Six-year-old Avery Moreau of Surrey won for her submission—Narley after she thought of rhyming it with her dog’s name of Harley. The submissions had to start with the letter N. The winning names will be given to the first 13 puppies born at the Police Dog Services Training Centre in 2020.One name is chosen from children’s submissions in each of the provinces and territories across Canada.
Respecting social distancing requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic, IPDS Corporal Michael Jordan visited Avery, her two-year-old sister, proud mom and grandparents outside of her home in Surrey. The family also met Cpl. Jordan’s Police Service Dog Lucy.
We are very happy to see one of the submissions win from the Lower Mainland because it means we get to meet the winner and thank Avery in person for her participation, says Cpl. Jordan. He added that he and PSD Lucy will visit Avery’s classroom, once it is safe to do so.
The puppies are born and bred in Canada at the Police Dog Service Training Centre at Depot Division in Alberta. The training centre, is truly an organization of excellence where the highest standards are set for our police service dogs and handlers with the goal of protecting Canadians.
