Beloved K9 cop gets emotional send off, ice cream sandwich on last day


ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (CNN) — A beloved “top dog” at an Arizona police department is retiring.

Bruno is a Belgian Malinois who is certified in patrol tactics and narcotics detection. His career with the Oro Valley Police Department spans seven human years.

The police department posted video of Bruno’s last day on the job.

The K-9’s accomplishments include sniffing out nearly a million dollar’s worth of drugs, and keeping his handler safe.

His reward? An ice-cream sandwich and some belly rubs.

Bruno also got a “last call” from the dispatcher, who said over the police radio: “Thank you for all your hard work and for making sure your handler got some safe every night. You can now chase rabbits instead of bad guys.”

The video of the sweet send off has gone viral.
