RPD Heidi – Avon & Somerset
Heidi came to Avon and Somerset aged 5 from Northumbria after her handler retired and they thought that she was too young to retire herself. She was a brood bitch and had a litter of 5 puppies.
She has the most loving and affectionate nature and adores a good tummy rub but made an excellent general purpose police dog too. She was very protective, rather vocal and had a really good nose. She competed with Louise at regional trials and in addition trained and worked as a firearms support dog. She is affectionately known as Gummy Bear as she’s lost a few teeth now.
