Sheriff's Dept. retires Aaron from their K-9 unit

LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) -- When people retire, some chose to move to a new city, others might chose to stay put and just enjoy life.

But what happens to the four legged workers when they retire?

We're talking about law enforcement dogs.

There are many options for these dogs after they retire.

The Webb County Sheriff's Office recently retired one of their K-9's.

We spent the morning with him to see what he is up to now.

Aaron served the Webb County Sheriffs office for five years.

He is specialized to detect bombs and explosives.

Everyday he would go to work with his handler, Deputy Luis Agredano.

Now that he is retired, Aaron gets to stay home and enjoy the retired life.

When police dogs retire, their K-9 handler has the option to adopt them.

For Deputy Agredano, adoption of his co-worker, and friend was the only option.

Aaron enjoys being a pet, taking walks in the park, and of course his play time.

The Webb County Sheriff's Office received a new dog named Denzo last month to replace Aaron.

Denzo also has the same K-9 handler, so he and Aaron can play on his days off.

Aaron is eight years old.

The Webb County Sheriffs Office now has four dogs that are a part of their K-9 unit.
