Catching crooks, sniffing out drugs, and chasing tail – his own, that is.
That is pretty much how Boomer, the Nanaimo RCMP Police Services Dog spent most of his days for the last six years.
And now that his crime-busting days are over, the loyal pup gets to spend the rest of his life in the loving company of his handler, Nanaimo RCMP Cst. Clay Wurzinger, and his family.
From catching assaulters to solving break and enters, finding missing people and saving lives, Boomer and his handler have seen and done it all!
On their last night together, the dynamic duo captured a man who was wanted in connection with several break and enters, and also caught a suspect wanted in connection with a stabbing.
While Boomer lives out the rest of his days hanging out with the family, it’s back to training and work for Cst. Wurzinger.
He is now at the RCMP national training centre in Innisfail, AB, with his new Potential Police Service Dog, Jerry. Like Boomer, Jerry will now be trained to be familiar with all types of buildings, terrain, weather, people, vehicles, etc.
By the end of his training, he will also be tracking and apprehending criminals like a pro.
