The Injured Police Dog Comes Out Of The Hospital He Is Greeted Like A Hero

Arlo, a K9 officer, started his career with honor and respect.He’s now going into retirement as a hero.Since joining the force with Washington’s Thurston County Sheriff’s Office in 2019, Arlo had been a faithful protector to his partner, and keeper of the peace for the community.

But after his successful involvement in countless cases, Arlo recently came scarily close to making the ultimate sacrifice.

Earlier this month, Arlo was wounded during an altercation with an armed suspect. Arlo had been shot twice — but thankfully survived.

And his colleagues wanted to give Arlo the best possible greeting.

As Arlo left the hospital, members of the force lined up to greet him – and honors continued to come their way home.

Arlo is still recovering and is currently safe and sound at home with his family. Despite the fact that he is no longer a member of the police, his bravery and sacrifice will not be forgotten.
