Eastern Cape: Droopy tails and teary eyes could be seen at the K9 Unit in Port Elizabeth yesterday afternoon, 29 June 2018, when one of our four legged colleagues was laid to rest. Bruno, a patrol and explosive dog succumbed to bone cancer after almost two years of suffering.
Bruno, a Rottweiler was with Sergeant Dicks for 8 years and was instrumental in many an arrests.
“It was really a sad moment to make the decision to let him go. He was my buddy for the last 8 years and together we made several arrests including suspects for serious and violent crimes. I am really going to miss him, but at least he is no longer in agony,” added Sgt Dicks.
Sgt Dicks and Bruno won the National Tracker Awards in 2017.
