Former K-9 deals with retirement

In March the Helena Police Department retired two of its K-9’s who were getting older and having health problems. Now we see how former K-9, Chase, and his handler, are dealing with the retirement.

“He still gets excited. He still wants to go, but he doesn’t realize that he can’t. You know he can’t go anymore,” says Officer Gary Herbst about his dog Chase. The routine used to be simple for Chase. His handler got dressed for work, and then they both got in the car to go fight crime. Herbst tries not to let chase see him in his uniform anymore. “We were a team. Well we still are, just not at work. Now we are here but it’s hard,” says Herbst with sadness in his voice.
