Madeira K9 police officer put down
MADEIRA, Ohio (WKRC) -- The Madeira Police Department had to say goodbye to one of its own over the last weekend in August of 2014.
Amigo, the department's K9 officer, had to be put down. According to the department's Facebook page, Amigo became sick while on duty Friday and was rushed to the veterinarian. The vet determined Amigo could not be treated and would be best off if he were put down.
From the Facebook page, "Obviously this comes as a shock to all the men and women of the police department. K9 Amigo was a part of our department, and was considered an officer just like the rest of us. He will be missed by all."
Officer Ed Farris was Amigo's handler. There have been more than 140 comments expressing sympathy left on the department's Facebook page.
