PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – Two K-9s retired this week from the Pembroke Pines Police Department.

"The Pembroke Pines Police K-9 Unit would like to thank K-9 Natz and K-9 Siep for their service throughout the years, as both are retiring from our agency," the police department said Thursday on its Facebook page.

Siep has worked with Officer Heath Wagner for more than nine years and served as a patrol and narcotics detecting K-9. Police said he assisted in the apprehension of several wanted felons.

Natz joined the police department in 2009 and has worked with Officer Patrick Pagliai since 2011. Natz served as a patrol and explosive-detecting K-9. He too is credited with helping in the apprehension of several wanted felons.

Police said each dog will stay at home with their handlers as pets.
