PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A SEPTA K-9 is back home with a South Jersey family following a controversial separation.

Abal, a bomb detection dog, lived with SEPTA Officer Richard Galanti and his family for four years.

The dog was recently transferred to another handler without explanation.

The family circulated a petition to get him back.

Abal is retiring from police work because of an injury and the Galanti family is now adopting the dog.

  1. I’m really glad to see the dog and his true family reunited and the dog are better off with them who truly love him.
