After years of helping others, a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office K9 will now enjoy life as an ordinary dog.

10-year-old Max has been with the force since 2009. He was officially retired this past November. In that time, he has aided in more than 200 arrests.

Max's handler, Deputy Eric McGlothin, says Max needed to retire following a brain tumor. 

Max will now live out the rest of his days with McGlothin's family, getting as much relaxation and treats as possible. 

The sheriff’s office posted a video to their YouTube channel Thursday celebrating Max's career and introducing the family who will ease him into retirement.
