Arson Dog Turns In Her Badge After Seven Years Of Sniffing Out Chemicals!Ashley Maisano
Lila, a black Lab, and her partner, Lt. Fabian Jackson, have spent the last seven years investigating fires for Portland Fire and Rescue. She joined the bureau in 2008 and was specially trained to detect chemicals that start fires. Her career spanned four states, but now, after more than half a decade, it is finally coming to an end.
Portland firefighters held a big retirement party for her where she finally got to eat a big bowl of food. Prior to the party, being a food reward dog, Lila has always been fed by hand as positive reinforcement for a good day’s work. Her partner got very emotional speaking about Lila at the party. “It’s been a great run,” he said. “Seven years is a long time. I didn’t think it was going to be this tough, but it is. So bear with me while I go through this.”
Thank you Lila for seven years of hard work!!
