So Axle is a Patrol Dog with Derby Police, clearly he didn't choose this job someone choose for him. In July 2018 Axle was on Duty and chased a criminal cornering him by a canal. Axle was stabbed 3 times by this criminal who earlier in the day had threatened a police officer and after stabbing Axle threatened another police officer. Now this criminal has been sentenced to 6 years and seven months in prison which is good...but I thought it only fair that Axle should be rewarded for his act of heroism !!! So I thought how about raising money to go towards buy steak, blankets and anything else that Axle likes as a THANK YOU from everyone for doing his bit to keep Derby safe!!
Chief Constable Peter Goodman said: "This attack was not solely limited to police constables, as PD Axle also suffered dreadful injuries as a result of multiple stab wounds, whereby he nearly lost his life.
We always want to reward people who do good deeds for the community so it's only right we reward Axle as well.
A proposal for a new law giving greater protection for police animals was blocked earlier this year after an objection by conservative MP Christopher Chope.... lets show Axle and all his friends that people care, Thank You!!
