China's first cloned police dog, an 8-month old Kunming wolfdog named Kunxun, passed the police dog assessment on Thursday and is now ready for work, Xinhua reported.

In early March, Kunxun arrived at the Kunming Police Dog Base in Southwest China's Yunnan province, where it participated in a professional police dog training program.

Born on Dec 19, 2018, Kunxun was cloned from Huahuangma, a seven-year-old female Kunming wolfdog on duty at the Pu'er police station in Yunnan province. Known for its first-class field work abilities, Huahuangma is considered an outstanding canine detective. According to a genetic test by a third-party testing institution, Kunxun's DNA is 99.9 percent identical to Huahuangma's.
