You have to be a very good boy to retire after working for only 10 years.
Luckily, Fairfax County Police Department’s most senior patrol dog K-9 Kodiak was an exceptionally good boy throughout his time working at the Northern Virginia police department.
After 10 years of service on the squad, K-9 Kodiak is embarking on the next chapter of his life — retirement.
Kodiak, a lover of all treats and playing ball, is a Belgian malinois/German shepherd cross breed.
Kodiak, who is considered part of the family, will live with his handler who is married with two children, a bloodhound a new patrol canine.
In a tweet, Fairfax County police said the four-legged co-worker had an impressive number of apprehensions that resulted in numerous charges.
