China has recently unveiled its first Corgi police dog, Fuzai.

This marks a significant shift in the conventional roles assigned to breeds in police work. 

This six-month-old Corgi made his public debut at a police camp open day in Weifang, Shandong province. 

He showcased his unique skills and broke the traditional mold of police dogs, which are typically dominated by breeds like German Shepherds and Belgian Malinoiss. 

Fuzai’s entry into this field highlights a broader acceptance and exploration of different breeds in roles that require agility, intelligence, and adaptability.

From a young age, Fuzai demonstrated remarkable qualities such as obedience, hunting capability, and a strong sense of possessiveness. These traits are all highly valued in police work. 

His training included a variety of disciplines, such as bomb detection and scent work. 

Fuzai’s small stature and agility make him especially suited for navigating tight spaces and performing tasks like searching under vehicles. 

This consequently proves that even less typical breeds can excel in demanding roles.

Traditionally, police dogs in China and many other parts of the world have been selected from breeds known for their size, strength, and aggressive capabilities. 

However, the introduction of Fuzai challenges these stereotypes and demonstrates that the criteria for selecting police dogs can be more diverse and include other breeds like Corgis.

Using a Corgi as a police dog is not just a novelty but has several advantages. 

Fuzai’s short legs actually provide him with superior maneuverability in confined spaces. 

His adaptability and low sensitivity help him remain focused and effective in varied settings. Consequently, proving that physical traits often overlooked in traditional police work can bring unique benefits to the role.
