Councilors honored Bronko at Monday’s council meeting, a now retired K9 Officer.
The German Shepherd becomes a normal dog. He can now sleep inside, play with toys and go to the park.
His handler, Officer Brian Keetle, says he’s a social dog and was a great officer.
“We did a lot [of] school demos and things like that,” Keetle said. “He’s a really social happy dog. When it came time to do business, you could absolutely depend on him no question.”
Keetle has worked with his new partner Troll for the last seven weeks. He says Bronko taught him everything he needs to know about being successful with his new K9 partner.
