Durban - KwaZulu-Natal police asked the public on Tuesday to donate potential police dogs to the service.

"Patrol dogs in the K9 units across the province are an integral part of policing and crime prevention," Colonel Jay Naicker said in a statement.

The SA Police Service (SAPS) needed German shepherd dogs or Rottweilers for training.

"A request is made to the public to consider donating dogs to the SAPS," he said.

Dogs should be pure-bred and between the ages of 1 and 3.

They would be trained to track and apprehend fleeing dangerous armed suspects.

People who wanted to donate could contact Colonel Krisen Naidoo on 082 417 6168 or 031 325 4799.
