RPD Bomber


Served from 2009-2016

Handler PC  Harrington

Bomber’s forever family wrote the following.

“Bomber retired to us from his force and was a wonderful dog who thoroughly embraced the word retirement!

We were told he’d like to live outside but found him in our bed by the second night of having him.

He was the ultimate body guard and as a young female I’d walk him on my own late at night as I knew he’d nail anyone who came near me.

He was known for having the hardest bite in Leicester, they could feel him through the bite jacket with his ginormous teeth!

He was a GP dog who tracked down many baddies and was very much loved by everyone who knew him (apart from the baddies of course!)

During his retirement he’d take himself to bed at 8pm and you wouldn’t see him again until at least 6:30 the following morning ? At first he would come down at 8:30 to see why we hadn’t gone to bed. We soon gave up and started going to bed at 9 to keep him happy ?? .

He was certainly the best dog in the world to me and I always had a fight on my hands getting him back from the dog sitters!

Bomber is greatly missed by us”

“Stella was a re-handle to me in 2012.
I worked Stella for three years until retirement in 2015.
She arrived in Leicestershire as one of the first Belgian Malinois puppies on the force at 7 weeks old. Stella was a very good police dog and later became a licensed TFSD.
Stella is retired at home with me where she currently enjoy’s putting her paws up with her best friend Marley”.

PC Sewell wrote the following tribute.
Dee was my second police dog who was the replacement for the retired PD Rosco.
Dee was originally bred by Strathclyde Police and came to me via Warwickshire Police.
Dee was a very good police dog and great fun to work although was a proper madam at times.  Unfortunately Dee suffered an embolism during a walk on rest days and lost the use of her rear legs.
Following lots of patience and recuperation along with fantastic physiotherapy she was able to walk and run again and lead an active life, although she had to be retired as a police dog.
Dee was retired to me and loved being at home with Rosco and the pet dog Marley.
Unfortunately and very suddenly Dee became ill and was diagnosed with lung cancer and died within 4 days of the diagnosis.

PC Sewell wrote the following tribute.
Rosco was my first police dog who was given to me aged 11 months old.
I then went on my initial course with him and successfully passed.  Rosco was found as a 8 week old puppy as a stray on Moss Side, Manchester and taken to Manchester dogs home.
He was seen by an instructor from Leicestershire whilst looking at another dog in the kennels. He was initially very poorly suffering with Parvo.
Once licensed PD Rosco was a very successful police dogs twice winning the John Chowanski trophy for the best police dog work two years in a row during his service.
He was a well renowned police dog within Leicestershire for his work and especially his puppy ears which made him look like he was wearing a hat.
He retired to me due to injury and spent 7 years enjoying his retirement.

RPD Duke

Handler PC Langston

David said: “He was the third and best shepherd I had. He had a fantastic temperament and could switch from being petted by children to work and back again with no problem. He was a great family dog and an even better work dog.  He was laid to rest as a result of severe scoliosis in his lower back.”
