They had severe malnutrition, persistent eye and ear infections, and were almost completely blind from a number of causes.

The puppies were later adopted, but energetic Badger struggled with his new family and was given back to the RSPCA when they realized he would make a wonderful police dog.
The RSPCA’s Jo Douglas, who looked after Badger, said:

The transformation from a scared, sick puppy to a brave and skillful crime-fighting hero has been incredible, the puppies were rehomed to loving families after weeks of treatment. However, Badger struggled in his new home and was sent back to the center.
He required constant stimulation and was constantly on the go, according to Ms. Douglas. He was simply too much for his adopters, so he returned to us. By concealing tennis balls about the center and playing pretend games with him, we kept him occupied.

He “really loved it” and was “very brilliant” at tracking down his scents, so we got in touch with the police to see if they’d be interested in hiring him as a new recruit.”

Badger, who is now 20 months old, qualified as a sniffer dog six months ago when he joined the police dog training program. After receiving treatment for weeks, the puppies were rehomed to caring families. However, Badger struggled in his new home and was sent back to the center.
