Following a 9-year stint with the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office, a K9 named Rose was laid to rest Friday, March 15.
Rose, born in 2004, was the first law enforcement K9 in the history of the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office.
Before joining the Guernsey County’s Sheriff’s Office, Rose spent time in West Virginia where she completed her training with the West Virginia State Police.
Rose would retire from her duties in 2014 and spend the remainder of her days with partner Sgt. Oakley and his family.
Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office released the following statement:
“Rose was a one of a kind canine,” said Guernsey County Sheriff officials. “You couldn’t help but love her. She was very personable and always aimed to please and be loved. She will be missed by all who had the opportunity to know her.”
