An unwanted Staffordshire bull terrier who was saved by the RSPCA after her previous owner could no longer care for her, has become the first ever rescue Staffie to qualify as a police explosives search dog.
Roxy arrived at West Hatch in Somerset after being brought to the centre by an inspector. She appeared to have an impressive talent for tracking down hidden tennis balls so the animal charity contacted police dog trainer PC Lee Webb.
He's worked alongside the charity to help 14 rescue dogs overcome abuse, neglect and abandonment to become police dogs in the past five years.
Roxy will be searching for explosives for Wiltshire Police after qualifying on the 28 June.
