Scout

K9 Scout died after a ball accidentally became lodged in his mouth, blocking his airway.

Scout was participating in an advanced training canine training exercise with other county and state police canines at a building in the 700 block of Starbuck Street in Watertown. Scout was given his ball as a reward during the training, but it became lodged in his mouth. The handlers immediately began giving aid to Scout and took him a veterinary hospital where he later died.

Scout had served with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office for 3-1/2 years and was trained in explosives detection, handler protection, and tracking.

Are these beloved and highly intelligent K9 animals now with the Lord Himself in the Heavenly Realm? Pastor and Author Randy Alcorn at EPM.prg certainly feels this is factual, and even devoted 2 chapters of his best selling “Heaven” book to establish his case. Get a glimpse of the Glorious Reunions awaiting their devoted trainers, owners and handlers at ImagineHeaven.net May the Good Lord comfort them, their Department and all Animal Admirers accordingly…
