K9 Amigo reminds me of my son's dog a Belgian Malinois. I love that dog. I can't image how the officer feels about losing his best friend and partner. I know that Amigo is playing with the children in heaven until the day that he meets up with his partner.

Amigo was a great police dog. He did his job very well. He is missed by all who knew and enjoyed working with him. He left us all too soon due to heat exaustion from hlelping to find two missing hikers who were found just after he died. We will miss you. You were a brave dog and I am sure you will be missed.

As a citizen who admires and respects the work of the Blue, I send deep condolences to the Kingman, AZ Police Department on the loss of this amazing officer. He clearly wasn't just a dog; he was the extended hand of the handler and the department. So sad to read of his passing. May God place his hands on all the officers who serve well, and may Amigo now run free, guiding from above.

I had the privilege of working along side of Amigo and Officer Simonsen, his handler. Amigo was a great dog and loved his job. I got to see Amigo do great things in the line of duty. Amigo gave his life doing what he loved.

K9 Amigo:

Thank you for your law enforcement service to the citizens of Kingman, Arizona and to the Kingman Police Department. Let us celebrate your accomplishments and remember your selfless sacrifice in the Line-of-Duty. However, death is not the end; it does not have the final say! Now, my furry Comrade-in-Blue, rest easy, we will take it from here! May the Lord God bless you, your family, your friends, and your colleagues always. FURRY BLUE LIVES MATTER!!!

"Well done, good and faithful servant!" [Matthew 25:21 ESV]

Let us Pray: Almighty God, the Kingman, Arizona Police Department was fortunate to receive the gift of Amigo from You. Now that he has left this life, please help them cope with his loss with strength and courage. We know that this beloved canine hero no longer suffers, and will live on in the fond memories of his loyal and dedicated law enforcement service for which he was trained. We pray that his accomplishments and unconditional love have enriched the lives of others and that he will forever be remembered by all those who loved and cared for him. Amen.
