K9 dogs are brave and hardworking animals who get into dangerous situations to protect the people under their care. These dogs do incredibly important work, such as searching and rescuing and chasing criminals.
A K9 named Bruno found himself in a life-threatening situation while chasing a suspected criminal.
Bruno K 9 faced a life-threatening situation when he was shot in the face while chasing a suspect. Bruno was a hero who saved the lives of other policemen.
«The connection is inexplicable,» partner Bruno R. J. Young said of his dog.
Young was understandably upset with the way the situation had turned out.
«Bruno was shot at close range. It was horrible to watch,» he told ABC News. «My whole world fell apart in a second. »
The German Shepherd was immediately taken to the hospital. The bullet almost hit the heart. He had two operations.
A week later they were reunited!
Although Bruno is healthy, he is now retired. He was adopted by Officer Young and his family.
«I know some people might say it’s just a dog. But they don’t understand. This dog went everywhere with him,» said Rachel Young, Constable Young’s wife.
Officer Young added, «He’s like a son to me. Bruno will be with me for the rest of my life.»
Agent Young’s new partner is a two-year-old dog named Yukon.
The bond that partners share is special, even if it is an animal. Officer Young and Bruno will always have a special friendship, and we are happy that they can live together!
