Meet Sansa and Harley, the newest furry additions to Cumbria Police force. They're training to recover bodies from water and find evidence from crime scenes:
Vets say a dog which was shot in Carlisle is lucky to be alive.
The Border Patterdale Terrier cross, named Sam, was targeted with an air rifle and suffered a punctured lung and internal bleeding.
The incident happened in the Sanderson Close area of the city between 7am and 7.30am yesterday, 9 August 2017.
Sam's owner, Emma Edgar, says the family have been left distraught and are asking anyone with information to contact the police:
Sam's vet, Charlotte Denston, says he's out of danger in the short term but it is too soon to know if there will be long-term complications.
He's been incredibly lucky because during the path the bullet has managed to miss his heart, quite a few major blood vessels and we think has succeeded in missing his food pipe so he's incredibly lucky to be alive.
Anyone with any information should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101.
Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre has re-homed its 4000th dog.
The centre opened in 2003, meaning on average, it re-homes about five dogs per week.
The charity in Glencaple relies on public donations and a large team of volunteers.
Lori Carnochan went to meet some of the dogs looking for a new home:
