Cancer Claims Pasco K-9 Lee
The dog, who worked most of his life with the sheriff's office, died on Monday.
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the loss of one of its own.
K-9 Lee died on Monday after being diagnosed with a “large tumor on his spleen just last Friday,” sheriff’s office spokeswoman Melanie Snow wrote in a media release.
Lee, 9, had worked with the sheriff’s K-9 unit most of his life.
“His death has been difficult for Deputy Robert Wilkins, who has worked with Lee since he was a pup,” Snow wrote.
Lee worked in narcotics and on patrol for the better part of seven years. He remained on active duty until his death on Monday.
