Cancer-Stricken Police K-9 Dog Gets Honor Guard Farewell!

no title

Falko the police dog served with the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit for over 11 years in New Jersey.

Sadly, only a few weeks after retiring, the German Shepherd was diagnosed with an aggressive lung cancer. He’d need to be put down.

His family must’ve been devastated; luckily, Falko and family had a lot of support.

The police pup took one last walk past an honor guard of other K-9s and cops he’d worked with throughout his career.

Falko worked with Officer James Faye and lived with him and his family. Kelly Faye, Officer Faye’s wife, said:

“He knew when he had to work and when he came home, he knew he had a family.”

Excuse us, we just need to grab a tissue quick…

Officer Faye, who we’d assume was pretty damn sad, got a text he’ll never forget, saying:

“It said, ‘Great dogs never leave, they live in our hearts forever’ and I was very grateful for that text and it’s true. He was a great dog and he touched a lot of people.”

We know having to put a dog down must be the hardest thing ever.

We’re glad Falko and his family had so much love and support around them.
