The Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office will say good-bye to its first law enforcement K9 in the history of the sheriff’s office.
K9 Rose was a single purpose narcotics detection canine most recently working with her handler Sgt. Oakley. The sheriff’s office said Rose was successful in locating numerous illegal narcotics and played a key role in combating the illegal drug crisis.
She retired in 2014 from her duties, spending her remaining years with Sgt. Oakley and his family.
She will be laid to rest at the Animal Clinic in Cambridge. For those wishing to pay their respects a procession will leave the clinic at around 6pm and go into Cambridge over the viaduct. The route will continue onto Wheeling Avenue past the courthouse to East Wheeling Avenue. She’ll be buried near the Middleburn area.
