K9 Officer Berry
February 25, 2006
May he rest in peace
Berry died in his
sleep possibly of a heart attack. He was 7 1/2
years old and a loyal partner and companion
since he was 13 months old. He would get upset
when he wasn't allowed to go out on tour.
Berry's favorite chair was always the one with a
lap on it. It didn't matter that he was an 87 lb
package of dynamite, he thought he was a lap
Berry saved his
partners life once when a suspect had a knife.
Berry took him down while they were fighting
under a house. The suspect got behind his
partner, went for his partners gun and Berry
grabbed the suspect hand and held it.
Berry was the first
K9 within the Tuscaloosa, Alabama Sheriff's Department to get a felony
apprehension. At the time the agency had dogs
for nine years. When he got his everyone was
always singing "Who Let The Dogs Out"
God Speed Berry and
YES all dogs do go to heaven.
