2005 -2013 Sussex Police
RPD George was the first ever retired police dog adopted by his family. He retired at the age of 8. He was a bit of a legend in East Sussex on patrol, at nearly 9.5 stone he always had a presence at any incident which 9 times out of 10 resulted in the total compliance of any suspect. He had a docked tail and metal plates and pins in his front right paw from separate incidents whilst on duty.
George was your quintessential old timer.. a bit grumpy and loved a cup of tea and digestive biscuit and did everything in his own time!
George passed away in 2013 after suffering a spinal stroke.
His family said ” we are honoured to have been able to give George the retirement he deserved. We are passionate to spread the word about how RPDs need a good retirement home to live out their days in a happy and safe environment.”
