Police dog Jax delivers litter of pups in lockdown
Congratulations are flowing for Jax the New Zealand Police dog on the safe delivery of her first little of pups.
The litter, known as 'the W litter' were delivered during Alert Level 4 lockdown.
"The first time mum gave birth to two males and two females via emergency C-section on Sunday August 22, and, as you can see from the video, they're all doing beautifully," says a Police spokesperson.
The pups have a long way to go until they're operational, but the odds are in their favour.
"Their dad, Dan, was a patrol dog in Dunedin, as was Dan's dad and the pups' grandad, Ajax."
Sadly, Dan died from a medical event in June 2018, but through the W litter his legacy lives on.
