A beloved K-9 named Bruno retired after serving his Arizona police department for seven years, and his last day on the job was a delight.
Bruno's trainer, Officer Roger Reynolds, let the puppy eat a delicious ice cream sandwich while a police dispatcher announced his retirement from the Oro Valley Police Department over a radio broadcast.
"This transmission is for the K-9 Bruno", announced the dispatcher. "He just finished his last shift and is now going to retirement. Thank you for your seven years of service. Thank you for all your hard work and for making sure your coach comes home safe every night."
Bruno joined the police department in September 2013. The very good boy, a Belgian male from Malinois, was trained and certified nationally in patrol and narcotics detection tactics.
After helping the department seize nearly $ 1 million worth of narcotics, Bruno deserves "some well-deserved belly massages," said the dispatcher.
While Bruno leaves behind a legacy, his K-9 companions, Justin and Diesel, will follow in his footsteps detecting narcotics and explosives in Oro Valley, just outside Tuscon.
"Now you can chase rabbits instead of bandits," said the dispatcher. "The officers in this department will miss you. Enjoy your retirement."
