Despite losing a leg and a shoulder to cancer, retired K-9 Jagger of the Wells Maine Police looked as energetic as ever in a video shared on February 4.
German shepherd Jagger, a member of the Wells Maine Police Department since he was a puppy in 2013, lost his shoulder and right front leg to cancer on December 11, police told Storyful.
In this footage filmed about a month after Jagger’s surgery, the former police dog can be seen on the grounds of the Wells Maine K-9 training facility, sprinting toward an officer for the typical bite-and-hold drill used to teach K-9 units how to gain control of a suspect.
“His working spirit is very much intact,” a Facebook post accompanying the video reads. “We wish him the best for his retirement and thank him for his service.” Credit: Wells Maine Police via Storyful
