In England, two fire investigating Labrador sisters have retired after a total of eighteen years of service. These awesome dogs helped the police catch dozens of arson criminals!
Eleven year-old Saxon and her 10-year-old sister Inca worked with Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service and assisted in more than 500 cases.
“It’s a pleasure to work with such talented lovely-natured dogs,” Graham Howlett, the dogs’ handler. “I’m so proud of what they have achieved.We have done jobs where the evidence they have found has been instrumental in getting a conviction.”
In 2010, Saxon and Inca identified an ignitable fluid at a house fire proving that accelerant had been poured through the letterbox. The culprit was put behind bars.
These awesome dogs can smell one drop of petrol as far away as the length of a football field.
This Labrador sisters have served for a total of 18 years: Saxon for more than ten years, while Inca for eight years.
Happy Tails pups! Enjoy your well-deserved retirement! Thank you for your service!
