Hillsborough County (Fla.) Sheriff's police dog nabbed one last suspect, who was wanted for murder, before retiring Friday to cap a successful career, the agency said.

Chino, 7-year-old German shepherd and Belgian Malinois mix, helped deputies capture former pro wrestler Brian McGhee on Wednesday in connection with a fatal stabbing a week earlier.

McGhee led deputies on a pursuit north on Interstate 275, crashed his vehicle, and refused to surrender. Chino jumped into the open door and pinned McGhee by the chest, reports the Tampa Tribune.

Chino joined the sheriff's office in 2008 with a grant from two local businesses. He worked fugitive apprehension and bomb detection missions with Deputy Jason Allen.

I hope the officer keeps Chino, as a family dog. If he don't I hope he goes to a good family.

Good job Chino. Now it's time to relax and enjoy yourself a little. Maybe chase a ball instead of a bad guy. :) Thanks you for your service.

If he doesn't I will be glad to take him. As a retired MWD handler he is a beautiful dog. Way to go Chino and Deputy Allen. You made a great team.
