Officers Gift K9 With A Beautiful Goodbye As He Enters Retirement

Bronx, a nine-year-old Belgian Malinois, has served with the Bakersfield, California police department for eight years, and now, it’s time to retire.

Bronx was trained as a detection dog, and has been with the Bakersfield Police Department since 2010. As one of the longest-serving dogs with the department, Bronx has worked in several units, including Bakersfield’s patrol division and SWAT team. He has also met tour groups at the police department and gone to schools to help educate children about their local police. A workaholic, even his off-days were used to train and hone his skills.

After all of Bronx’s contributions to the Bakersfield Police Department and his long tenure, his former colleagues lined up to give him a warm sendoff and show their appreciation for him.

It’s nice to see his human co-workers take the time to give him a proper farewell and recognize everything he has done for their team as he walks out of the department for the final time. His partner of eight years, Senior Officer Chris Dalton, is opening his home to Bronx, where he will get to live the life of a normal dog with his new family. It’s a well-earned retirement for a hardworking dog!
