My partner is a K-9 handler and yesterday his 6 year old Dutch Shepard named "Kim" passed away unexpectedly. A month ago they were in Ohio accepting the Top Team in North America award from the American Canine Officer Association. Kim is credited with alerting to the biggest Cocaine seizures of our Department and one of the biggest on the east coast which was 106 kilos, or about a 10 million dollar street value on one traffic stop. She is a great loss to our agency, our team, and especially her handler and his family. Please take a moment and remember them over the next few days. She not only was a Law Enforcement Officer but she was a partner, a best friend to her handler, and a sweet girl to me and my other team mates. She will be sorely missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with her handler and the rest of the team.  My husband and I greatly appreciate the canines that work to make our lives safer.

 

God Bless.

Oh my, it sounds like it was a horrible shock.  Kim sounds like he was a phenominal dog and partner.  My condolences.

So very sad to hear this tragic news... It has to be a horrendous shock to everyone. They steal a little piece of your heart and never ever let go.

Rest in peace Sweet Kim.. There's a special place at the Rainbow Bridge just for you

You never notice the small things until they're gone. My partner said that after being with her for 3 years every day the hardest thing for him is not hearing her in her car kennel behind him. Thanks everyone for their condolences.
