Miami Beach K9 officer opens door, hops in

MIAMI (WSVN) - A keen K9 is bringing a whole new meaning to the term “doggy door.”

The Miami Beach Police Department tweeted out a video of K9 officer, Mikey, opening the door to a squad car with his snout before hopping inside.

Friday is a bittersweet day for Mikey and the Miami Beach Police Department because it’s his last day on the job.

“He’s done a lot for me. He’s done a lot for this city, so the least we can do is reward him, just let him be a dog and let him have fun,” said Mikey’s handler, Officer Emilio Garcia.

Mikey will go home with Garcia and live out the rest of his life in retirement.

Mikey served in the force for seven years.
