Handler PC Akam

Xander’s handler wrote the following.

“Xander was amazing police dog, daft as a brush and friendliest dog you could meet unless I said that magic word and he would be full on.

Xander was a proper nanny dog and looked after lots of other PDs. He helped train his brother Fenrir and loved working, playing his favourite game of searching for people right to the end.

Xander will be greatly missed by his brother Fenrir and myself, my family and all who knew him.”

RPD Dexter

18/5/2009 – 5/8/2020

Served 2010 to 2014

Handler PC Myerscough

Dexter’s handler wrote the following.

“Dexter was bred by GMP, he was a gentle soul who liked nothing more than coming to work and trying his best.

He was never going to be the greatest PD but his tenacity got him some great results – saving my bacon on more than one occasion, which even resulted in him winning awards.

Sadly he was retired early due to a medical condition and went on to enjoy 6 years of happy retirement with his loving forever family. He was my first GP dog and I learnt a lot from him.

He was a great character, friend and colleague and will be missed by everyone.”

Dexter’s forever family wrote the following.

“When Dexter retired he loved nothing more than lying in front of the wood burning stove watching TV.

He loved his walks on the beach and around the village where he would jump up and sit on his favourite stone and he loved meeting and greeting everyone.

He is greatly missed by us.”
