Zak worked with the CNC from 2006 to 2013. He suffered a stroke in November 2017 and was put to sleep, at almost 14 years of age.
Zak started work in Dounreay in the north of Scotland in 2006. Two years prior he was adopted from a rescue center, the Balmore SSPCA near Thursco. Zak was sent to Cumbria to complete his Police Dog training and ended working back in Scotland, just half a mile from the SSPCA!
Zak was known as a phenomenal tracker. He also enjoyed performing in the Police Dog displays, including at the animal shelter he came from.
In 2013, upon retirement, he was replaced at work by PD Vader. Zak stayed with his family in retirement.
