A North Queensland based dog squad officer was taking a trip for a few days and asked their officer-in-charge to look after their 17-week-old police-dog-in-training.

Hendrix, the puppy, certainly did make an impression.

He was left in the care of Sergeant Raymond whilst Constable Matt McKinnar went on a quick trip out of Cairns.
