Ronnie-D was a retired detection canine from the United States Border Patrol. He proudly served in Yuma, Arizona from March of 2010 until his retirement in November of 2017. He was an incredible working canine, loyal friend and partner.
Unfortunately, on November 22, 2018, Ronnie-D suffered from bloat and was rushed to the emergency vet’s office. He was not able to recover and it was in his best interest to have him peacefully cross the rainbow bridge.
Retired Minneapolis Police Department dual purpose canine Gunnar served proudly from May of 2013 until his retirement in May of 2015. Recently, K9 Gunnar fell ill and was losing a lot weight. On October 30, 2018, an ultrasound was administered where a mass was discovered on his spleen along with two more masses on his lower intestines. Emergency surgery was conducted to remove his spleen and to conduct six biopsies. We all know that routine veterinary care can be expensive, so it is no surprise that emergency surgery to remove his spleen was a big financial burden to K9 Gunnar’s family. Retired Paws was happy to pay for this surgery.
Unfortunately, K9 Gunnar was diagnosed with small cell lymphoma in his lymph nodes, small intestine and liver. K9 Gunnar is only 6.5 years old and is a fighter; he began chemotherapy to aggressively treat the cancer. We are all rooting for K9 Gunnar and wish him the best of luck during his treatments. We are hopeful that with his young age and fighting spirit, he will beat this terrible disease.
