A police dog who served with North Yorkshire Police has retired after four years of service.
Thor, a six-year-old German Shepherd, had worked alongside his handler, PC Martin Gayles, since 2014.
Working as a general purpose police dog, Thor helped to aid arrests, sniff out suspects, locate property and find missing and vulnerable people over the years.
He has now been retired on medical grounds.
Before retiring, Thor spent one last night at home with his family including PC Gayles, his Mam, two sisters, Finn the Labrador and PD Meg, an English Springerdor trained in detecting drugs, cash and firearms.
He has now given up his police duties and put up his paws to live as a pet with a new family in Bradford, making way for PC Gayle’s new sidekick, Buzz, a five-year-old Belgian Malinois.
