ASU police K-9 retiring

Posted August 21

— An Arizona State University Police K-9 is ready to enjoy her golden years after a successful career keeping the public safe.

Disney's specialty was explosives detection, but now the 9-year-old yellow Labrador retriever is retiring.

"Now she's part of the family," says her partner, Ofc. Parker Dunwoody who gets to take her home for good.

He's had Disney at his side for eight years conducting safety sweeps and assisting criminal investigations all over the country.

"We do sweeps for high-profile events," says Dunwoody. "We do protective sweeps for dignitaries, sweeps for all of the ASU football games."

Dunwoody says Disney loves to stay active, so she'll continue her police work out in the community.

"It's always a great time," says Dunwoody, "because the kids just love her coming out."
