POLICE in Spain have rescued a mistreated German shepherd dog from its abusive owner and recruited it into the force.
Officers from Granada’s Local Police allegedly spotted the owner kicking the poor animal in the street before rescuing it and rushing it to a vet for attention.
After the pup received treatment for its injuries the kind-hearted cops decided to recruit the cute canine into its ranks.
They turned to their social media users to choose a name for the newest member of the force and top of the polls was Stan Lee, ‘father’ of many Marvel superheroes – who passed away this week.
Police say the puppy has now made a full recovery and will start his training soon.
The original owner of the young dog was reportedly arrested for animal abuse.

Anoche recibimos una llamada porque alguien iba dando patadas a un peludete en c/ Real de Cartuja.
Al desalmado lo detuvimos y al cachorro 🐶 lo tuvimos que llevar de urgencia al veterinario🏥.
Esta mañana mientras dormía hemos decidido que lo vamos a adoptar. #K9
