MPD K-9 "Emo," who recently celebrated his 11th birthday, now celebrating retirement

MILWAUKEE -- He just recently celebrated his 11th birthday, and now, the Milwaukee Police Department's K-9 Officer "Emo" has retired.

A post on the MPD K-9 Foundation's Facebook page indicates Emo's final roll call was Saturday, September 24th.

Emo just celebrated his 11th birthday on September 13th.

Milwaukee police tweeted out a photo of Emo, with funny caption "Happy 11th birthday to K9 Emo, who wanted nothing to do with a birthday photo!"

Emo's partner was Officer Christina Roesken. He was by her side for nine years on the force.

Officer Roesken has served 21 years on the force, since August of 1995.

"I love him. We spend more time together than anyone else in my life. He is with me at work and with me at home," said Roesken.


According to Milwaukee police, Emo, full name Emo Vom Brauberg, was certified in narcotics and patrol -- building searches and tracking people.

Emo loves his ball on a rope and anything he can play tug of war with. He enjoys chewy treats, but according to police, he will eat anything!
