Police from the Pahang Contingent Police Headquarters (IPK) paid their last respects to the police dog, BAD, a canine that has done much for the country.

Through a post on Facebook, police from the Pahang Contingent Criminal Investigation Department (JSJ) said BAD, a labrador, breathed his last at 3 pm on Monday after fighting for his life due to old age.

According to him, BAD is a K9 JSJ IPK Pahang dog that is 13 years and eight months old (equivalent to a human being of 91) and has been doing devotional service since 4 August 2011.

Police added that throughout his service BAD managed to produce two significant successes in defeating drug syndicates in 2012 and 2014 with his skills.

Labradors are friendly, calm, and extremely trainable, often chosen by the authorities as detection dogs.

Labradors also do well with both sole owners or as a part of a family and get on well with children and other pets.

Originally bred to sniff out felled birds during hunting, they’re having a blast running around.

Labradors get this creepy low-butt-to-the-ground posture as they sprint like maniacs. 

Their ears flip inside out, and they look pretty ridiculous. They also are lazy when they sit down.
