K9 Injured In The Line Of Duty Is Honored When Released From The Hospital

Arlo joined Washington’s Thurston County Sheriff’s Office in 2019 and has been a loyal partner and protector of the community ever since. But after many successful altercations, the K9 recently had a very scary moment…

During a run-in with an armed suspect, Arlo was shot twice. Fortunately he survived, but he would need lots of medical care and surgery. It was then decided it’d be best for the K9 to enter retirement, and the day he was released from the hospital, the dog received a hero’s salute! His sacrifice won’t be forgotten as he heads off into the next chapter of his life. 🙂
