Police officers condolence on police dog Bear death
After retiring from his work as a police dog in 2019, Bear found his forever home on a farm in the Forest of Dean.
Yesterday evening, Bear’s family ran a Twitter account in his honour and paid respect to the former police canine.
“It hurts my heart to tell you that beloved Bear passed away today,” they stated. He went to sleep during his lunch nap and regrettably never emerged. He wasn’t ill, and he was still extremely busy on the farm and in great shape.
“There are so many special memories, including biting a DEFRA inspector who scaled the farm fence and staying by my daughter’s side throughout her surgery. So incredibly devoted, kind, and protective.
“Such a kind approach to kids. A more devoted friend is more than I could have hoped for. Good night, giant man.
