Albania's 'hero' police dogs settle into retirement


After years of sniffing out illicit cash in Albanian airports, 10-year-old German shepherd Konti has a lot to look forward to in retirement. He will enjoy it by the side of his partner in fighting crime, his handler Ilir Balla. The 10-year-old canine is lucky. Unable to part ways with the dog, Balla officially adopted the dog following its retirement from the police force, vowing to take care of it "until the last days of his life".
