New dog for cop whose old one was shot

1:00 pm on 28 April 2011

A senior police officer whose dog was shot dead during a drugs raid in Christchurch last year will be returning to the frontline shortly.

On Thursday afternoon Bruce Lamb, whose dog Gage was shot in July, will leave the police dog training centre with a new dog, Mylo.

Mylo is one of eight narcotics and explosives dogs that will be graduating at a Police College ceremony north of Wellington on Thursday.
