An abandoned stray who was found wandering the streets has now become an award-winning police dog.
PD Buzz was found on the streets of Bradford, West Yorkshire, in August 2021 and although he was mircochipped with his owner’s address, they did not want him, which meant the pup ended up at Cliffe Kennels in Barnsley.
But PD Buzz’s fate all changed when he started showing his potential as a police dog and within his first 12 months on the force, he assisted officers with 26 arrests, 71 pursuits and 38 searches for missing people.
The once-unloved pooch has done very well for himself, even scooping South Yorkshire Police’s Animal of the Year award.
His role on the force is ‘fundamental’, as he has detained prolific criminals, located people and property and protects his partner in crime PC Ashley Green.

In October last year, PD Buzz followed the scent of a woman who was being threatened by an aggressive man, which lead to him being detained.
PC Green said: ‘Over the past year Buzz has gone from strength, showing that he was made to be a police dog.
‘I joined the dog section in 2021 and was partnered with PD Buzz in 2022. Our relationship is strong, and I trust him to protect me.
‘His rough start in life hasn’t impacted on his loyalty and power to protect, we respect each other and face everything as a team.
‘Our first year has been amazing, I believe I have the best job in the world, spending every day with my best friend. I am looking forward to what the next chapter of our career holds.’
