The Police Dog Unit – NSW Police Force recently bid farewell and happy retirement to long-serving Explosive Detection Dog ‘Aero’.
Aero will see out his retirement days living with his handler and family.
NSW Police says Aero and his handler were lucky enough to travel the state for work, attending many significant and high profile events, all while getting some great detection finds on the way.
His handler had nothing but praise for Aero.
“Aside from being a great working dog, Aero quickly became my best mate,” his handler said.
“It will be a tough transition for both of us not going to work together everyday, although I think he will adjust to kicking back at home pretty well.
Explosive Detection dogs are expertly trained to detect every known material commonly used in the production of explosive devices – it’s a dangerous and important capability for the NSW Police Force.
The Australian Seniors News team wishes Aero all the very best – and plenty of Schmackos – for his retirement. Thank you for your service Aero!
