Faust the K-9, who retired after eight years and one day on the job, was honored by the BNSF Railway Police.
Senior Special Agent Bryan Schaffer radios in his partner’s final goodbye in this touching video, and it’s an emotional moment for both Faust and Schaffer.
Schaffer takes advantage of the opportunity to inform the dispatcher that the time has come for these two partners to separate. He barely manages to finish the dispatcher’s speech without breaking down in tears.
Of course, you can hear and see his best friend crying and kissing him as he, too, is affected by the emotion of the moment.
