There aren’t many public servants that retire from active duty at the age of nine, and even fewer who are as good at their jobs as Police Dog Luna.
Earlier today, Police Scotland announced the retirement of the four-legged officer.
“Larbert-based PD Luna has hung up her lead and tracking harness at the fine age of nine,” a spokeswoman stated. Luna was handled by PC Linda McBride, who had Luna since she was nine weeks old.
“Despite being situated in Larbert, Luna covered the east of Scotland and had enormous operational success over the years, tracking countless wanted and high-risk missing people.”
“Luna has been a key member of the team and will be missed on shift by dog handlers and front-line colleagues.” We wish Luna a happy and long retirement.”
Luna will continue to work with PC McBride, who has made room for her in the house with PD Saul, PD Spud, and her family.
