Military K9 honored by deputies

These deputies helped honor a K9 military hero

A K9 military working dog, who recently lost his battle with cancer, was laid to rest with the help of deputies in Bossier Parish, Louisiana. “Febe,” a retired Military Working Dog (MWD), was laid to rest at the Heavenly Acres for Pets – Pet Cemetery, in Elm Grove on Friday. Deputies with the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office escorted the military hero to his final resting place.

The 11-year-old German shepherd had retired from his duties on September 11, 2015. The working K9 served at Camp Victory in Baghdad with his handler, Tech. Sgt. Tommy Hollis, a Bomb Explosive Detector for the 2nd Security Forces at Barksdale Air Force Base.

“It was a privilege and a great honor to participate and lead this funeral processional for this war hero,” said Bossier Sheriff’s Deputy Jesse Bearden.
