Words are from Tangos handler. I put this picture collage together in tribute to tangos service with the sheriffs dept.— The time has come for Tango and me to step down from K-9 and this page. Tango had a freak accident this past weekend where he pinched his nerve in his neck while chasing a kong. It was scary for a bit but he has recovered about 90%. In the best interest of his health and a healthy retirement, it’s time to retire. Tango has been a blessing in my life. He has done everything asked of him all for a simple reward or praise. He is very photogenic as you can see. I have met many fantastic people during trainings and school demos. Many kids have been able to pet and scratch a working Sheriff’s K-9. Recently, I was assigned to the Adult Compliance Team (ACT) and the Sheriff’s Department blessed me again by allowing Tango to go with me for an undetermined amount of time. It was a department decision supported by most and a surprise to me. I was able to work with Tango and introduce him to the ACT team. We had several successes starting with day 1. Thank you FSO for trusting me to represent the department in one of the highest liability positions I can think of.
It has been my pleasure to serve the citizen’s of Fresno County as K985 for almost 12 years off and on. Thank you for your support Friends and God bless.
