Des Moines’ newest dog park will be named for a former canine officer.

The city council gave final approval to the Reno Memorial Dog Park at their meeting Monday.

Reno was shot while protecting his partner, Officer Tim Nading, in 2004.

Reno recovered, returned to the force and won a national K-9 competition.

He passed away last year.
