Momo, the Chihuahua joins the latest police recruits
Momo, the intelligent Chihuahua made it through all the tests and has become the first of her breed to make it into the police force in Yamatokoriyama, Japan. She only weighs about 3kgs and had competition from larger breeds such as German Shepherds and Golden Retrievers, yet she is amongst the 32 dogs selected from 70 that entered the recruitment process. Momo has a year contract with the police force and will start work in January when she will be used in rescue operations such as earthquakes as due to her small frame she can fit through spaces where the larger breeds have great difficulty.
