Well done to both Lao Wu and Sergeant S. Sanmugam!
On 11 February, German Shepherd, Lao Wu, from the police dog unit of the Pahang police force, received the Jasamu DiKenang award, from the Pahang police chief Abd Jalil Hassan.
Lao Wu created history as the first dog to be given a medal for his services.
Abd Jalil was represented by his deputy, Mohd Yusri Hassan Basri, at the Pahang police contingent headquarters monthly assembly and the medal, was draped over Lao Wu, by his handler, Sanmugam.
Lao Wu is 5 years and 8 months old and Sanmugam said that he is his fourth dog in his 29-year career with the dog unit.
According to Bernama, Lao Wu was acquired from China and has been recognised for his efforts in tracking down a vehicle theft suspect who fled 4km deep into a palm oil plantation in Felda Sungai Tekam, Jerantut in the early hours of 14 November 2019.

We appreciate what you did.

It’s about time that service dogs are appreciated and awarded for contribution to our society. I can only hope that they are well taken off, till the very end and not be discarded just because they are old and can no longer serve the country.
