Sheriff's Dept. Canine Officer Honored
A canine officer in Transylvania County was honored during a special service this afternoon.
Dune was with the Sheriff's Department for 4 years. He died in May 2012 after losing a battle with cancer.
It's the first time the Sheriff's office there has ever held a plaque ceremony for a canine officer. Dune worked with Lieutenant Kevin Holden, who says the department's 4-legged officers are every bit as important as their human ones.
The Sheriff's office has 3 canine officers. One called Bosco, now works with Lieutenant Holden.
