DOG PARK: Naming Honor For K9

K-9 Reno police dog

The Des Moines Parks and Rec Department is planning a special honor for a police K9.

Tuesday the board will vote on a proposal to name the city’s newest dog park on Hubbell Avenue, the Reno Memorial Dog Park.

The German Shepard is best known for surviving two gunshots during a chase in 2004. Reno was able to make a full recovery from the shooting to work several more years with the police.

He died last year due to health problems.
