Police Force Honors K-9 On His Last Day With A Tribute Fit For A Hero

On the day that K-9 officer Zeus was taken to cross the Rainbow Bridge, the Ridgefield Police Department gave him the goodbye he deserved: one fit for a hero.

After 9 years of service, he’d retired in 2014 because he suffered from a degenerative hip disease, which progressed over the next year. When the pain was too much, the stoic German Shepherd was taken for a final ride in a squad car to Ridgefield Veterinary Hospital, there  his colleagues stood to salute him. As he was wheeled toward the entrance, his family walked alongside him, and his partner, Officer Shawn Murray, never left his side.
