Clemson’s bomb-sniffing dog, Doc, is retiring after seven years of dedicated service investigating bomb threats with the University Police Department.

The black Labrador retriever worked Memorial Stadium for 12 hours each football game day and other events with his handler officer Zachary Owen.

“It is very important for a canine team to trust and depend on each other for them to be a successful team, and this team has exceeded our expectations,” said police Chief Eric Hendricks.

“We are very proud that Doc will be enjoying his retirement and look forward to our newest canine, Woodrow, who has joined the CUPD family.”
