WA Police dog Dakota has retired after five years patrolling the streets of Perth.
And it was some career, with the black labrador responsible for finding more than a million dollars over the journey.
The force announced Dakota’s retirement in a Facebook post on Monday afternoon.
They said she was involved in a number of huge drug busts in her time, and was looking forward to a long and happy retirement with her handler.
“Wishing PD Dakota all the best in her much-deserved retirement from WA Police Canine unit,” the police wrote.
“Dakota has been pawtrollin’ since 2016 and has detected a total of 14.6kg of narcotics and $1.13m in cash over her career.
“Her biggest busts include finding 1kg of methamphetamine buried in a Bateman property and $250k cash found under a house in Southern River.
“She is looking forward to plenty of beach runs, couch hangs with her handler and playing with her local park pals.”
