Bruno the K-9 faced a life-threatening situation when he was shot in the face while chasing down a suspect. The dog selflessly through himself in the line of fire, and while the suspect was killed in the gunfire, Bruno was a hero that saved the lives of the other officers.

His partner RJ Young was understandably distraught over how the situation played out.

He notes about the experience-

“[Bruno was shot] point blank, it was a horrific thing to have to watch,” he told ABC News. “My entire world came tumbling down in the matter of a second.”

The German Shephard was immediately taken to the hospital. The bullet narrowly missed his heart, and he underwent two surgeries before he could be taken off his breathing tube. A week later, the two were reunited!

While Bruno is healthy, he’s now retired from service and has been adopted by Officer Young and his family. Officer Young explains- “He’s like a son to me. Bruno will be with me for the rest of my life.”

Officer Young’s new partner is a two-year-old named Yukon. His family and friends just keep expanding!

The bond that partners share is special, even when one is an animal. Officer Young and Bruno will always share a special friendship, and we’re glad the two of them are able to share their lives together forever!

The suspect was killed in the gunfire, but Bruno stopped him from hurting anyone else — including Officer Young. “[He was shot] point blank, it was a horrific thing to have to watch,” he told ABC News. “My entire world came tumbling down in the matter of a second.”

Bruno, who at the time was a 6-year veteran of the Anaheim, CA, police force, was bleeding profusely and was rushed to the hospital. A bullet remained lodged inside his chest, but miraculously, it barely missed his heart.

After bravely undergoing two surgeries, Bruno’s breathing tube was removed. A week after Bruno was hospitalized, the cameras were rolling when Officer Young was finally able to hug his partner again.

Bruno never returned to life as a canine officer. Instead, he retired and happily went home with Officer Young and his family. Officer Young said, “He’s like a son to me. Bruno will be with me for the rest of my life.”
