Labrador Shepherd DogEverybody say it together now… aww.

Eight puppies were born in the back of a Winnipeg police cruiser car, but don’t worry, none of them are under arrest.

It all happened early Thursday morning when officers observed two dogs wandering in traffic near Mountain Avenue and McPhillips Street. The cops were able to lure the dogs to their vehicle using food purchased from a nearby store. While on the way to an animal shelter, police were diverted to a gun call on Redwood Avenue.

After leaving the dogs in the back of the cruiser car for about 4 hours, officers returned to find the female Labrador/Shepherd cross had given birth to eight puppies. The two adult dogs and eight puppies were taken to Animal Services where two more puppies were born.

The owner of the dogs was later located and picked up both dogs and all ten puppies after paying a fine for letting his dogs run loose.
