TRURO — The Royal Canadian Mounted Police needs help in naming a handful of their newest — and cutest — recruits.

One of the RCMP puppies waiting to be named in this year's contest.

The Police Dog Service Training Centre (PDSTC) in Innisfail, Alta., is asking young Canadians to suggest names for 10 German shepherd puppies recently born at the centre.

Children are encouraged to be original and imaginative in finding names that will serve these puppies well in their careers with Canada’s national police force. When thinking of names, it is important to keep in mind that these are working police dogs, not pets.

The 10 children whose names are selected will each receive a laminated eight-by-10-inch photo of the pup they name, a plush dog named Justice, and an RCMP cap.

Here are the contest rules:

- Contestants can suggest only one name (one entry per person).

- The name may be for a male or a female pup.

- The name must start with the letter “G”.

- The name must have no more than nine letters.

- The name must be one or two syllables.

- Contestants must live in Canada and be 16 years old or younger.

To enter, go online to www.rcmp-grc.ca/depot/pdstc-cdcp/name-the-puppy-nomme-le-chiot-eng.htm; email the child’s name, age, address, telephone number and the suggested name for a puppy to pdstc-cdcp@rcmp-grc.gc.ca; or send a postcard or letter with the child’s name, age, address, telephone number and the suggested name for a puppy to “Name the Puppy Contest”
Police Dog Service Training Centre
Box 6120
Innisfail, Alta., T4G 1S8.

Drawings and paintings are welcome with submissions.

Although there can be only 10 winners, names not selected for the contest will be considered for other puppies born during the year.

Deadline for entries is March 5. Contest winners and prizes will be announced on April 15.
