Police dog Axle begins recovery

Posted on 10th July 2018

We have released a couple of photos of our police dog Axle, who is now back on his paws after being injured in the line of duty.

Seven-year-old Axle was injured last week and has been looked after since then by staff at Pride Veterinary Centre, in Derby.

He was discharged yesterday afternoon and is now back with his handler, PC Dean Allen, to begin a period of rest and recuperation.

Since he was injured, we have received hundreds of messages of support for both Axle and his two-legged colleagues and we would like to thank people for those messages.
