We have a new member of the Retired PD gang, say hello to Rusty who joined us earlier this month.
Rusty joined Lancashire Constabulary in 2013 along with his sister Indie who unfortunately didn’t make the grade. Rusty is a crossbreed, he is a Malinois x GSD x Dutch Herder (or a mongrel to us normal doggy folk smile emoticonRusty was a general purpose dog throughout his time with the Constabulary and had loads of brilliant jobs, he wasn’t afraid to do his job as he was a big brave powerful dog.
Rusty was retired earlier this month as his hips were showing signs of mild dysplasia, and a new home was sought. The work the dogs do can be quite intensive, there’s a lot of work climbing fences etc. so it wouldn’t have been unfair to keep him working as it may have caused him pain. Rusty loves people but wasn’t a fan of other dogs unless he knew them.
A home has now been found for Rusty & as you can see in the final photograph I think he has well & truly got his paws under the table. Happy Retirement Rusty & welcome to the pack (and your humans too !!)
