In a photo posted on the Tucson Police K9 Facebook page on Thursday, Sept. 17, Tango is still wearing a cone, but he has been cleared for light duty.

This means he gets to do some detection training and some exercise.

Tango was shot on Sept. 3 while chasing and catching an armed robbery suspect.

Despite being shot, he never let go of the suspect, and that suspect now faces multiple felony charges.
