Two nine-week-old Springer Spaniel puppies were special guests aboard Northlink’s MV Hjaltland yesterday as they arrived to join the Dogs Against Drugs Shetland team.
They travelled with their new handlers Hannah Anderson and Megan Grant, who are both undergoing training to become special constables with Police Scotland.
The two dogs will join the three dog team already part of Dogs Against Drugs; Thor, aged seven, Axel, aged six and three-year-old Oscar.
The two newest recruits, a female and a male, have yet to be named and will live with their handlers.
A full report will appear in this week’s Shetland Times, out Friday.
