A get well message has been sent to a Staffordshire police dog, who was injured on duty, by his namesake.
PD Audi and his handler were assisting colleagues who were trying to detain a man in Hanley on 1 July, when he sustained an injury to the side of his head.
He is now at home recovering from his ordeal.
Today (11 July), police officers have shared that a message thanking PD Audi for his service and wishing him a speedy recovery has been sent by the car maker Audi.
A food hamper has also been sent for his handler.
We're pleased to see our gifts arrived with you safely and thank you again for your service. We sincerely wish PD Audi the quickest of recovery and please pass on our best wishes to the entire team.— AudiUK Customer Care (@AudiUKCare) July 11, 2019
