RCMP needs help naming their 13 new police puppies

Mounties need help to name their new puppies.

The Name the Puppy 2017 contest is held yearly to name 13 German shepherd fur balls that will grow up to be RCMP police dogs.

Children age 14 and under can enter the contest, which runs until April 11.

Names of the puppies must begin with the letter K.

Contest winners will be announced on May 11.

Winners will each receive a laminated photo of the puppy they named, a plush dog called Justice and an official RCMP baseball cap.

The puppies are born at the RCMP Police Dog Service Training Centre in Innisfail, Alta., throughout the year.

The centre breeds top-quality working German shepherds and trains dogs with outstanding searching and tracking abilities.
