Nottinghamshire Police's Dog Section is celebrating the arrival of seven puppies, born under the force's in-house breeding programme.

'H' Litter, so named because it is the eighth litter bred under the programme, was born on August 24.

Mum Boo gave birth to seven pups -- six boys and one girl -- in a labour lasting more than six hours.

The girl is called Heidi and her brothers have been named Hugo, Hank, Hector, Hendrix, Harris and Hoff.

They are now seven weeks old and, in the next week or so, will be inoculated and leave the force to be taken care of by volunteer puppy walkers.

Earlier this week, the pups were tested to assess their suitability to enter a training programme to become a police dog. Those found to be suitable will start an initial police dog training course in January 2012.

'H' Litter is the third to be born to the force's Dog Section this year. 'G' Litter -- Geoff and Gilly -- were born in April and 'F' Litter was born off-site in April. Four of the F Litter pups are being raised by puppy walkers and the rest were re-homed with members of the public.
