Toy poodle as police dog
-- A toy poodle has been performing well as a police dog in Ibaraki Prefecture, near Tokyo. After nearly being euthanized in 2013 following possible mistreatment, the 4-year-old female "Anzu" was employed by the prefectural police in January 2016 and has been involved in searches for missing persons and evidence left at crime scenes. A senior police officer said, "Her abilities have improved immeasurably."
