What do you get a police dog who is retiring?

The Davis County Sheriff’s Office is celebrating the retirement of a K9 named Nomos.

Through its Facebook page, the sheriff’s office announced the retirement.

Nomos has served faithfully since 2014. In dog years, that’s a full career!

The sheriff’s office says Nomos has spent his career apprehending criminals and sniffing out illegal narcotics.

Nomos’ retirement will not be a dog’s life. That is, he won’t be miserable at all.

The dog’s handler will keep Nomos in her home. The handler, Sgt. Wennergren, has served alongside Nomos throughout his paw-some career.

The sheriff’s office says that Nomos’ retirement will be full of “unlimited toys, treats, and love.”
