OMG: RCMP puppies, ridiculously cute, canine cops

We told you earlier this year about an RCMP name the puppies contest. Well, those future canine cops now have cool new handles thanks to a record-breaking 21,000 submissions from kids across Canada.


The monikers for the 13 puppies born at the RCMP Police Dog Service Training Centre in Innisfail, Alta. came from boys and and girls representing every province and territory.


“Everyone at the Centre was blown away by not only the number, but also the creativity of all the entries,” Inspector André Lemyre, the Officer in Charge of Police Dog Services, said in a statement.


All names had to start with the letter H. And, the winners are:

  • Haley
  • Hammer
  • Hannah
  • Haven
  • Hawk
  • Herc
  • Hero
  • Hector
  • Hitch
  • Hooper
  • Hope
  • Hulk
  • Hunter


RCMP police service dogs do everything from search for missing people to track criminals and find evidence to sniff out drugs and weapons.


The national training centre is where 93 per cent of German Shepherds working with Canada’s national police force were born.
