RCMP are looking for young people to help find names for 10 puppies who will grow up to be police dogs. 

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.

The German shepherd puppies were recently born at the the Police Dog Service Training Centre (PDSTC) in Innisfail, Alta.

The name can be for a male or female pup, but must start with the letter G and be no longer than nine letters.

"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," said RCMP in a release. 

"When thinking of names, it is important to keep in mind that these are working police dogs, not pets."

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

The contest winners will get a laminated photo of the pup they name, a plush dog named Justice and an RCMP cap.

The deadline for entries is March 5 and prizes will be announced in April.
