Max, 14 months old
"Boismoor Kourage"

Max was born in September 2003. He went to his family home at 8 weeks old but was returned home to me at 7 months. At nine months he went to the police, and graduated from Keston with flying colours, just 14 months old. This photo was taken on graduation day. I was proud to watch him show off his new-found skills and to see him meet Lady Thatcher. On approaching him he recognised me and enthusiastically covered me in mud, then sat at my feet and made sure no-one came too close...........

Max was selected to represent the police in the working dogs stamp issue released in February 2008. He is a credit to his handler and I am thrilled and delighted that his picture has been chosen for the 48p stamp, more details can be found here
