Transit Police K9 Spike enjoying his retirement.

In May of 2013 after 7 years of dedicated service Transit Police K9 Spike retired from duty. Spike was an exceptional police dog who during his illustrious career patrolled the MBTA system helping to keep a secure environment, fearlessly tracked down criminals, located lost and missing individuals and in his last year of service alone was part of a team which seized over 700,000 dollars worth of illegal narcotics. Transit Police Lieutenant Detective Richard Sullivan stated "Spike was one of the, if not the, best narcotic detection canines I have ever worked with. His ability to sniff out illicit drugs was truly amazing. The Transit Police owe Spike a debt of gratitude for his remarkable service in our efforts to reduce the availability of illegal drugs in our communities". 
Nowadays, one year into his retirement Spike enjoys his time by keeping active with his friend and former handler Transit Police K9 Officer Mike Carey.  As you can see by the photo's  Spike has not lost a step. Officer Carey has a new partner, canine Tika, who has some big paws to fill. However from what we have seen so far Tika is up for the challenge. tpdnews.
