SEYMOUR, Ind. - The Seymour Police Department is retiring its fourth police dog since 2010 after veterinarians discovered it had an enlarged heart.
The retirement of the 8-year-old German shepherd named Redge will leave the department with one K9 officer. Chief Bill Abbott tells The Tribune he doesn't have any plans to invest in a new police dog.
Redge was diagnosed with heartworm and underwent treatment. Veterinarians then discovered that the dog had been born with an enlarged heart.
Abbott says Redge has helped with hundreds of arrests during his years on the force.
The dog will live with Sgt. Ryan Huddleston. They have been partners for six years.
Huddleston says the dog is well socialized and will do well in retirement but notes he'll miss having him in the car.
