I think most handlers do get a new partner.

Remember this post from Officer Thorpe who posted here about his retired dog and new one?

Sunflowers See Bruno prance out of there and jump into the police car!
Video here:

Wounded police K9 Bruno released from hospital | abc7chicago.com

Also,when handler RJ arrived home with Bruno yesterday, several K9 units from all over Orange County lined the street to his house to welcome Bruno home.
So wonderful to see a happy ending for a change!

Msmaria Update Bruno went home yesterday. Hes doing well. Hes retired. Newspaper said he ran full force to the patrol car and thought he was going to work. They are having a ceremony this month for him.

Sunflowers Mouth and nose are part of your airway.

If you can't close your mouth properly, you swallow air along with whatever you are swallowing, especially when being given water by syringe.
When they were feeding him the meatballs, they had to put them at the back of his mouth so he could use the teeth in the very back.

Who knows if this is why he bloated-- could have been the stress, as well.
Poor guy.

The only reason this dog is in this Hades is because of an evil, ruthless being who does not deserve to be called human.
Let's hope he can make a good recovery and can live the rest of his life happy and pain free.
How do you think his airway was compromised? He wasn't doing anything on his own, they were giving him food and water by syringe because if his jaw. As far as I read he was already standing on his own today after the surgery. This dog is one heck of a fighter and I hope he has many years left to enjoy his retirement

I just hope he gets to go home soon.
