Background

Carmen was found wandering along a roadside by a woman whose husband was a former police dog handler. They considered handing Carmen over to the RSPCA, but she was so smart, curious, and friendly that the husband made a few calls, suggesting that she might be suitable as a police dog.

Only about one in three dogs recruited by the police make it through training and Jersey police were actively looking for puppies to situate on the island in the hopes that they could strengthen their police dog unit in a year or so.

After being passed around Gorey station, the form calling for “puppy walkers,” volunteers who take care of the puppies in their first twelve months, landed on Constable Barnwell’s desk. Without paying too much attention to what he was doing, Barnwell completed the form and shortly afterward, rather to his surprise, he took receipt of Carmen when she arrived at Jersey airport.

Loyal, best nose in the business, goofy, smart, happy.  The best good girl there is, everyone says so!

Dislikes

Being away from her human. Baths.

“Excellent story, lots of suspense and twists and turns and great characters!”
