Canada's RCMP Is Asking For Your Help To Name Their New Puppies

Stop what you're doing. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police is asking for the public's help to name its new puppies.

The 13 nameless German Shepherd puppies will one day have very important jobs as police dogs.

TL;DR The RCMP is asking for Canadian children's help to name 13 German Shepherd puppies.



If you didn't melt into a lifeless puddle after looking at that photo, then you can help name these dogs by encouraging a child or teenager you know to enter a contest through which the RCMP will give these courageous pups their lifelong monikers.

These are the contest rules, straight from the RCMP website:

  • Names must begin with the letter "M"
  • Names must have no more than nine letters
  • Names must be one or two syllables
  • Contestants must live in Canada and be 14 years old or younger
  • Only one entry per child will be eligible
  • Entries must be received by March 26, 2019

"The 13 children whose names are selected will each receive a laminated 8×10-inch photo of the pup they name, a plush dog named Justice and an RCMP baseball cap," the site explains.

Contestants can enter online here or send a letter addressed as such:

Attn: "Name the Puppy Contest"
Police Dog Service Training Centre
Box 6120
Innisfail, AB T4G 1S8


Thankfully, the names that are not chosen as winners will be considered for other police puppies that are born in 2019.

Good luck, Canada!
