On Friday night, K9 Bodie will go to San Francisco to be inducted into the California Animal Hall of Fame, acording to the Sacramento Police Canine Association.
Bodie was shot and critically hurt by a suspected car thief on May 18th of 2012. Bodie took the first bullet from a suspect’s gun, and saved his partner’s life.
Bodie retired in May of 2013, but has participated in several public events and frequently visits local schools.
The Sacramento Police Canine Association also publicly thanked Dr. Chris Wong and Dr. Rob Runyan of VCA Sacramento Veterinary Referral Center “for saving Bodie’s life and allowing him to receive this award.”
