These fluffy pooches ventured outside for the very first time ahead of starting their career protecting the public.

West Midlands Police Dogs shared the images of the youngsters on social media as they enjoyed their first taste of sunshine.

The litter was born on St Patrick's Day and have proved a hit with members of the public who have seen videos and pictures of them since they were days old.

West Midlands Police dogs tweeted saying: "As the Easter weekend approaches our St Patrick’s Day litter venture out for the first time.

"Here’s wishing everyone a safe and happy break."

And a new fund has been set up to improve the lives of police dogs after they retire in the West Midlands.

During their career, which lasts on average seven to 10 years, these brave police dogs can suffer knee, leg and back problems while performing their community duties.

Although they are treated and cared for at the time, these injuries can shorten their life span and usually require further ongoing medical attention long after they retire, according to the Retired WM Police Dog Benevolent Fund.
