The Regina Police Service (RPS) recently announced the retirement of their beloved therapy dog, Merlot. Merlot, a black Labrador Retriever, has been a part of the RPS family since 2014 and has been a source of comfort and support for many members of the community.
Merlot was originally adopted from the Regina Humane Society and was trained to be a therapy dog by the RPS. He was used to provide comfort and support to victims of crime, witnesses, and members of the community who were in need of emotional support. Merlot was also used to help de-escalate situations and provide a calming presence in times of crisis.
Merlot was a beloved member of the RPS family and was well-known in the community. He was often seen at community events and was a regular visitor to schools and hospitals. He was also a regular participant in the RPS’s annual “Paws for a Cause” event, which raises money for local charities.
Merlot’s retirement marks the end of an era for the RPS. He was a beloved member of the team and will be greatly missed. The RPS has expressed their gratitude for Merlot’s service and dedication to the community. They have also announced that they will be looking for a new therapy dog to join their team.
Merlot’s retirement is a bittersweet moment for the RPS and the community. He was a source of comfort and support for many and will be remembered fondly. The RPS wishes Merlot all the best in his retirement and looks forward to welcoming a new therapy dog to their team.
