Brave Staffordshire police dog starts retirement
BBC News - Brave Staffordshire police dog starts retirement
A police dog which has been nominated for a bravery award is marking Christmas with retirement.
German Shepherd Major worked for Staffordshire Police for six years.
Major is among finalists for the National Police Dog of the Year award after tackling a man who was firing an air pistol.
Major, aged eight, has given up his police duties and will live as a family pet with his handler, Pc Lance Stevenson.
Staffordshire Police said Major and his handler were deployed to Hanley in October after reports a man was firing a hand gun while walking towards Sneyd Green.
"Armed officers were on their way to the incident but because of the immediate threat to members of the public, Major was instructed to bring the man down," a police spokeswoman said.

Happy retirement , Major.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
