Even our furry friends deserve to be recognized for their hard work and dedication to the community.

The City of Buckeye held a retirement ceremony for K-9 Officer Cido and his handler, officer David Smith, was there with him.

The ceremony was streamed live on Facebook.

Cido dedicated eight years to service with the police force. Smith and Cido have worked together on Buckeye's SWAT team.

The 10-year-old Belgian Malinois was trained in locating illegal substances as well as suspect location and apprehension.

The City of Buckeye thanked Cido for his service. Cido will become a member of Smith's family.

Way to go, Cido! We thank you for your service.
