To pawtect and serve: These K-9 recruits are arrestingly cute

These puppies are in training to serve and pawtect.

A Taiwanese police department’s K-9 unit has recruited six new puppies to possibly join their squad.

Fushin, Schumann, Feida, Yige, AJ and Liang were born in early May.

The half-dozen cuties will be trained to follow in Yellow and Leader’s paw prints, mostly as drug detection dogs.

Pan Tian-long, captain of the K-9 Unit, told BuzzFeed that the puppies are already being prepped for detection work by trainers, who put narcotics near their food before they eat, to get them used to the smells.

One of the pups, Fushin, has the potential to become a blood detection dog — that means he’ll be trained to sniff out blood, even tiny amounts.

“Fushin is very special,” Pan said to BuzzFeed. “He is the naughtiest and the bossiest.”

Taiwan has employed detection dogs for about a decade now. Most have been supplied by Australia.

These six cuties make up the first litter of dogs bred by the New Taipei City Police Department’s K-9 unit, according to The Straits Times.
