AJax and new friend Harvey enjoying down timen 8 year old black Labrador that holds the record for the largest quantity of heroin and cash found by a police dog in Bedfordshire has retired after over 6 years of faithful service.
Jax worked as a specialist drugs, firearms and cash sniffer dog and has had a very productive career keeping people safe and catching crooks. He originally joined Bedfordshire Police dog section prior to collaboration before working at Luton Airport.
Jax has now moved to a new home where he is already being described as one of the family.
Jax enjoying the sun in his new garden New owner, Police Constable Craig Bennett, said Jax is a delightful dog that doesn't have any bad habits, unless biting his nails counts.
PC Bennett said: "Jax came to live with my family in April and has settled straight in to our home. He is a typical Labrador - full of character, very playful and inquisitive. Because of the type of work Jax did he was well socialised and gets on very well with our other dog Harvey. My wife and children absolutely adore him.
"Having worked at the airport for such a long time most of the staff knew him by name and made a fuss of him - he was always known as a bit of a celebrity and he'll now spend the rest of his life living indoors, sleeping, playing and being spoilt rotten."
