Poor Fred! This police K-9 was given his pink slip recently by the Gulfport Police Department for poor work performance. It seems that the Belgian Malinois was too distracted to get the job done.
Fred was trained by K-9 Unlimited — considered an excellent training school — and the city paid over $12,000 for the dog two years ago. However, the department recently had to return the dog because, when out on patrol or searching for drugs, Fred couldn’t keep his focus. They even sent Fred back to school for more training, but nothing helped.
Who knows what’s going to happen next to Fred, but police chief Leonard Papania assures it won’t be bad: “I can tell you nothing terrible will happen to Fred.”
