A K9 who served with the Findlay Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is retiring.
“Please help us congratulate K9 Boy, Findlay District, who has retired after six and a half years of service to the Patrol and the citizens of Ohio,” the Highway Patrol posted on their social media.
“Boy is an eight-year-old Belgian Malinois. During his years of service, he was utilized for tracking, article searches, narcotics detection and criminal apprehension. Boy will spend his retirement years with his handler, Trooper Matthew M. Manly, and family.”
In 2019, when WFIN did a story about Boy and Trooper Manly, Manly said Boy is a great partner and has a good temperament.
“He realizes when I put my uniform on and we get in the Tahoe that it’s time to go to work, but when I take him home he knows how to take that work hat off and just be a dog.”
