T-Rex assured his fans on Twitter that this wasn't the end of his career or his happy home life with his handler.
Yes, he will continue to work as a explosive detection k9 for our department. I will keep T-Rex and use him for special events and work a second k9 as my patrol k9.— K9 T-Rex (@K9TRex) January 21, 2019
