Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco has given a birthday treat to two golden retrievers of the Philippine Coast Guard’s (PCG) Canine Force.
Britney, a search and rescue dog, and Barley, an explosive detection dog, both turned five years old.
“They have been doing great service to the people and the country,” Climaco said.
As her treat, the mayor gifted the two animals with dog food, vitamins, and deworming medicines, as a show of gratitude for their service.
The two canines have been in the PCG service since 2016. Their handler is PO1 Miguel Yniego Jr.
