GREENVILLE, S.C. — After 129 months of service with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office, K-9 Kroc is retiring from the force.
WYFF4 reported that Kroc joined the force in June 2006. He was critically injured when he was stabbed while pursuing a suspect.
After Kroc recovered from his wounds, he received the Medal of Valor from the sheriff’s office and a Valor award from the North American Police Work Dog Association, the news station reported.
Deputy Drew Pinciaro said Kroc’s service has led to 220 apprehensions, 415 arrests and 721 served warrants.
"We are extremely proud of Kroc’s accomplishments during his career and he will be greatly missed by our agency," Pinciaro said on Facebook.
Kroc will spend his time with his K-9 handler “eating doggy treats and relaxing.”
