Shadow, the Pequot Lakes Police Department’s K-9 dog, was retired Jan. 31, the city council learned Tuesday, March 5.
“The dog is at the end of his useful life cycle,” said police chief Eric Klang, noting the department planned to look at the K-9 program as part of its strategic planning.
The city will offer to sell Shadow to police officer Josh Gartner, his handler, for $1.
“Shadow has been a real asset to the department for his working life, and your service with Shadow has been appreciated by the community,” Klang wrote in a letter to Gartner.
