Back in March 2014, Bruno, a K-9 German Shepherd, was out in the line of duty with his partner, Officer R.J. Young. Sadly, poor Bruno was shot in the face while chasing down a suspect.

Bruno stopped the suspect from hurting anyone else, and the suspect was killed in the gunfire. Officer Young had told ABC News that Bruno was shot point blank. Officer Young said it was a horrific thing to have to watch. His entire world tumbled down in just a second.

At the time, Bruno was a six-year veteran of the Anaheim, CA, police force. He bled profusely from the gunshot wound but returned to his partner as though nothing had happened. Bruno was then rushed to the hospital. A bullet was lodged in his chest, but it somehow missed his heart. This was quite the miracle!

Bruno braved undergoing two surgeries. Later, his breathing tube was removed. He had to recover from a shattered jaw.

A week after Bruno was hospitalized, someone captured Officer Young’s reunion with his partner. Warning: this is a tear-jerker but so worth it to see the happy guys.

Bruno and Officer Young had a heartfelt meeting. Bruno whined and circled his partner. Officer Young said it was Bruno’s way of trying to say, “When are we getting out of here?”

Bruno’s New Life

Bruno was never able to return to his life as a canine officer. Instead, he took on early retirement with life at home with Officer Young and his family.

Officer Young said, “He’s like a son to me. Bruno will be with me for the rest of my life.”

Officer Young’s new partner in crime is two-year-old German Shepherd named Yukon. Officer Young and the rest of the police force don’t consider Yukon to be Bruno’s replacement, but another welcome member of the team.
