    Andrew and Anne – All of these dogs will enjoy retirement with their handler and family. They’re all very much loved and spoiled.

    I’ve always wondered if the handlers can adopt their dog. Does anyone know? Wonder what the dogs think too.They must get so bored staying at home.

    Beautiful dogs with such an important job. Thanks to the retirees and their partners. Hope the partners get the opportunity to adopt the pups.

    Man’s best friend, criminal’s worse enemy! These fine four-legged LEOs help keep the peace in times of wanton crime. Thank you to their handlers for taking great care of them and in the future too.

    Thank you K9s and handlers for your service to our community!

    Wayne, you don’t need to be far behind your dog. If you need a second opinion, ask the dog. He’ll tell you as well that you don’t need a lot of money to live on after retirement and you’ll make up the difference solely on medication after you leave. Congratulation to the K-9’s and handlers for their service and please always be careful out there. Mike
