BNSF Railway Police said farewell to Faust the K-9, who retired after eight years and one day on the job.

In this heartwarming video, Senior Special Agent Bryan Schaffer radios in his partner’s final goodbye and it’s an emotional moment for both Faust and Schaffer.

Schaffer takes the opportunity to let the dispatcher know that the time has come where these two partners have to split up. He is barely able to finish hearing out the dispatchers speech and not break down in tears.

And of course you can hear and see his best pal right there by his side crying and giving him kisses as he too feels the emotion of the moment.
