DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. — A K-9 who served with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office died Wednesday, officials announced.
K-9 Borris retired in 2012 after serving for seven years.
“Borris served Douglas County from March 2005 to October 2012 without fear or reservation,” Friends of Douglas County K-9 stated on Facebook.
Borris served as a member of the patrol division and the SWAT team, according to the group.
“He made our community safer and will always be a hero and live on in our hearts,” officials said.
The group said Borris fought cancer “valiantly” during the last year of his life.
“What a great career Borris had and a very good boy he was. Run free buddy, job well done,” the Aurora Police K-9 Unit said on Facebook.
“He will be greatly missed,” the sheriff’s office said.
