White culture on fine display in Bakersfield, California.
This is the touching moment Belgian Malinois, ‘Bronx’, is given a guard of honour after eight years service with the force.
Bronx leaves the police station in Bakersfield, California for the last time to a round of applause from his human colleagues.
The nine-year-old dog is accompanied by his handler Senior Officer Chris Dalton as he finishes his final shift.
‘He is one of the longest serving K9s our agency has ever had.
‘Chris and Bronx have been partners since January 2010, and have served on the SWAT Team since 2014.
‘Bronx has done numerous demos for schools and tour groups at our department, and has been awarded many awards throughout the years for his dedication, skills, and work.
‘Thank you for being a loyal K9 all these years, Bronx.’
