K-9 honored with retirement party

BULLARD, TX (KLTV) - There was quiet a retirement party in Bullard this afternoon...and it was for a dog.

That's right, a dog. "Axe," a German Shepherd, spent over seven years helping Bullard Police in the war on drugs.

But he had an even greater impact on members of his community. Axe is notorious for being patient, well-mannered...and just plain nice.

"Made me a little softer...apparently, cause I mean, he's, he's everything to me," said Mary Dartueil, Bullard Police secretary and Axe's new caregiver.

Axe retired due to health issues. He is now living in the lap of luxury as a "retiree."
