GARNER, N.C. (WNCN) – There was a big celebration in Garner this week for Bear and Bandit, two K-9 officers who are retiring.
The dogs served the Garner Police for seven and a half years.
During that time, they did everything from search and rescues to narcotics detection.
“He’s had my back since I’ve had him,” said Garner Police officer Sonny Roberson. “He’s always been there for me. He’s been a real asset.”
Their last day of work was Sunday.
One of the dogs had a parting shot – at WNCN. When WNCN went out to do a story on the retiring dogs Wednesday, the dog urinated on a tripod for a WNCN camera.
A Garner officer laughed and said, “He’s a dog.”
