Working mom-dog is set to retire

Heidi was not any ordinary working dog, she was also a mom, and an internet sensation. Heidi joined the Northumbria Police force in the UK when she was just eight weeks old. She was a working dog, but also was the mom three different litters of future working dogs. As the pups grew, their people set up a webcam so you could watch the cuteness unfold. The puppy webcam eventually reached over 300,000 hits from around the world!

Now that Heidi has done her part working for the police and raising 28 pups (most of which followed her footsteps in the police force), she is set to retire. She will be living in the home of one of the police kennel attendants. She is just five years old, so still has lots of life ahead of her. We wish her all the best for the next phase of her life!


  1. I love you Heidi and hope the rest of your life is wonderful! I also have German Shepherds and love the breed! They are so smart and so beautiful!

  2. I'm so glad she can retire and at just 5years old can still live a full life taking it easy! all the best to her and her babies.
