What will the dogs do now?Deputy Chief, Brett Johnston, said, “It’s kind of sad. Nobody wants to see a dog lose its job.” However, once a dog goes through a specific training it can be very difficult to retrain an adult dog rather than pup. To be retrained or retired--that is the question. Still, police have said the dogs may be able to work future counterfeit cases. The Medford police have requested additional funding from the city for new pups to be trained to smell other drugs.Fortunatly, Police Chief, Tim George, promised that, regardless, Narc and Cody will end up in good homes. Cody’s handler said he’d be happy to adopt his co-worker.Graham explained, “We don’t say they’re being fired, we prefer to call it early retirement.”We wish Cody and Narc the best of luck, and thank them for all the work done!
If you have any questions or concerns, you should always visit or call your veterinarian -- they are your best resource to ensure the health and well-being of your pets.
Research what type of pet is best suited for your family’s personality and lifestyle. Dogs require more attention, time and energy than cats do, so if you don’t enjoy walks or hikes in the outdoors, or can’t imagine getting up on cold winter mornings to take your pet out to potty, a cat may be more your style.
