The last call has been made for a police K9 who died days after falling four stories from a parking garage. The German shepherd, named Argo, was a K9 with Missouri’s Normandy Police Department.
According to the Department, K9 Argo suffered serious injuries when he slid during a hailstorm and fell from a parking garage on November 5. The fall broke one of Argo’s legs, his ribs, and chipped a vertebrae, in addition to causing significant bruising. Initially, though Argo was seriously injured in the fall, his veterinary team was optimistic that he would make a full recovery.
In fact, shortly before he passed away, it appeared that Argo was turning the corner and doing much better. On Tuesday night, the Normandy Police Department broke the tragic news of Argo’s unexpected passing to Facebook followers:
It is with regret that the Normandy Police Department announces the sudden and unforeseen passing of Normandy Police Canine Officer Argo this evening.
We were notified that Argo took an unexpected turn for the worst, going into cardiac arrest. We ask for your thoughts and prayers for his handler Officer Miller and his family at this difficult time.
Rest in peace Argo.
Last radio call, K9 Argo 💔
