Rookie police dog's first rescue

 This dog's name is Max. He's a two-year-old German Shepherd mix. After he finished training as a police dog, he was on his first shift last month when he successfully located a missing woman and her child in Wales. The woman had not been seen or spoken to for two days before authorities began their search. Police had a starting point where the woman's car was found empty on a mountain road.

Despite only being recently licensed, and on his first operational shift, Max immediately commenced an open area search. Max and his handler, Police Constable Peter Lloyd, found the missing woman waving for help near a steep ravine on a mountainside. The mother and child were "safe, but cold," and had been in the area for a "significant" amount of time, according to police.
