A retired Humberside Police dog who was shot three times in the face while on duty has been given a lifetime achievement award.
Logan, a German Shepherd who is eight years old, got his award at a ceremony put on by the Thin Blue Paw Foundation at Knebworth Park in Hertfordshire.
His owner and former handler, PC Ian Sweeney, 52, from north-east Lincolnshire, went to the awards and said that Logan was his “soulmate.”
PC Sweeney, who has been a police officer for 28 years and worked in the dog unit for 13 of those years, said, “This award is especially special because it recognizes everything he’s done, and I don’t think you ever really think you’ll get something like that.”
“It shows how much all the hard work was worth it. Logan is my soulmate, and I’m so happy for all that he’s done. I’m still very shocked, overwhelmed, and happy about it.’
