Sunport K-9 retires after 7 years of service

A K-9 that’s been keeping the Sunport safe is now resting his paws. 

Atos the K-9 is retiring after seven years of working with the Albuquerque Police Department Aviation Division to sniff out bombs. 

That equates to 49 years of service in dog years. 

At his retirement ceremony Wednesday, Atos received a chief’s coin, a plaque for his service, and a nice, big treat. 

Atos will live with his handler, Officer Phil Brown.
