Rumble / Heroic AnimalsA police dog that caught dozens of criminals over a glittering six-year career was thrown a retirement party by his force - complete with a K-9-friendly cake.

Buck, a seven-year-old German Shepherd, has been cracking down on crime with Clearwater Police Department since graduating patrol school in May 2012.

The crime-busting pooch spent two years using his sharp sense of smell to track down criminals who had fled burglaries and car wrecks before specialising in explosive ordnance disposal in August 2014.
