A new police officer made his debut in the force after the completion of his training in the eastern Chinese city of Weifang, Shandong. Surprisingly, the new member is a dog, Xinhua reported.

After the induction of Fu Zai, the Chinese newspaper reported that the corgi could be the first of his breed to become part of the police.

The purpose of the six-month-old is to break the stereotype that a corgi can not be a part of the police because of his short legs. And this is garnering people’s attention worldwide with his ability to detect explosives.

According to the China Daily, “the reserve police dog has a lot of daily work to do on a variety of subjects, such as obedience exercises, bomb searches, and scent tracking, which started when he was only two months old.”

Wang Yanan, head of the police dog base at the Weifang public security bureau was quoted as saying: “His strong environmental adaptability, insensitivity, his desire to possess items, and his fondness for food are particularly conducive to our training.”

With the help of its short height, it can assist officers in identifying objects beneath vehicles and narrow spaces. His cute appearance could also increase the interaction of the public with the police.

“Police dogs are not only cute, but trainers have done a lot of work and gone to a lot of effort to train them to be professional,” Wang said.

Fu Zai has to undergo further drills before officially start performing his responsibilities.
