The Cheshire and North Wales Police Dogs team announced the passing of PD Guinness, paying tribute to him.

PD Guinness was licensed as a general-purpose Police Dog in 2021. His handler and those who witnessed his short but impactful career are mourning the loss of a true hero.

He not only fulfilled his duties but went beyond, earning himself a Chief Constable’s commendation for his outstanding efforts.

The legacy left behind by PD Guinness – a general-purpose police dog – is not just one of loyalty and protection but of courage, intelligence, and unyielding commitment to duty.

His work has undoubtedly saved lives and brought criminals to justice, reflecting the vital role that police dogs play.

While the void left by PD Guinness will be felt, his memory will live on through the many stories, accolades, and the profound impact he made on those he served and protected.

PD Guinness can be seen in action in the video below chasing down a wanted man.

General-purpose police dogs are multi-disciplined canines trained to work under a variety of conditions.

Dog breeds used tend to be German Shepherds, Dutch Herders, or Malinois.

General-purpose police dogs have a depth of skills that include searching for missing persons, tracking suspects from crime scenes, and recovering recently discarded articles that could be used as evidence.

They also protect their handler and other officers in dangerous situations, and even the mere presence of these police dogs can be enough to discourage bad behaviour.

Most handlers in the North Wales & Cheshire Police Dog Alliance have a general-purpose dog and a specialist dog such as a Labrador, Cocker, or Springer Spaniel.
