Zoom will go fast, Zorro will be strong and Zoe is likely to be the most popular.
Or at least that's what the kids at Sydney Children's Hospital think of the newest recruits to join NSW Police's dog unit.
The five playful German shepherd puppies - Zoom, Zorro, Zoe, Zara and Zala - got to meet the patients who named them at the hospital on Thursday.
Jett Waldron, 7, who is undergoing chemotherapy for rhabdomyosarcoma - a form of children's cancer - told AAP he picked Zoom because he thinks the pup will be fast.
"It's awesome - it definitely brightens their spirits. I think big kids and little kids like the puppies," Jett's mother, Melanie Waldron, said.
Bella Duggan, 12, who has the heart condition cardiomyopathy said Zara was her favourite name.
She told AAP she loved playing with the dogs because they were "really cute and fun".
Her mum, Ev Schneider, said voting on the final names and then getting to meet the puppies was one of Bella's favourite days in hospital.
"It's just special, it just nice to be involved in it," she said.
Sydney Children's Hospitals spokeswoman Gilly Paxton said: "Every child here will remember their stay in hospital for the puppies and not because they were in hospital."
The puppies, born on Christmas Eve, have started tracking training and will one day be used in foot pursuits and missing person searches.
