Drug dog's rendezvous leaves city with 'surplus' pups

A picture of Tiara's puppies was not available at the time this story was published, but they're likely just as cute as these other Belgian Malinois puppies.

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Some puppy love sparked action by the Gulfport City Council Tuesday. The council declared five Belgian Malinois puppies as "surplus property" that can be sold for $500 each.

Gulfport's police chief said the puppies belong to Tiara, the department's only female drug dog. He said female canines cannot be fixed because it affects their drive to work. So when in heat, extra precautions have to be taken or, well, puppies happen. 

Although not confirmed, a Gulfport city spokesperson has pointed to the handler's other dog as the alleged father.

    At this time last year, a guy by the name of Dak Prescott was still on the draft board. In fact, the Mississippi State star didn't hear his named called until Saturday during the fourth round. Luckily for the Cowboys, Prescott turned out to be the hidden gem of the 2016 draft class. The NFL AP rookie of the year was in Longview Friday night for a fundraiser supporting the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Pines.
