Barrow County Sheriff’s Office mourns death of K-9 Dax

Thursday was a somber day for the Barrow County Sheriff's Office, with the passing of its K-9, Dax.

In a post on the agency's Facebook page, the BCSO said that "Dax epitomized dedication, courage, and unwavering loyalty."

Dax was proficient in sniffing out illegal narcotics and skilled at suspect apprehension.

"He was not only a robust K9 in the region but also displayed remarkable gentleness towards family, friends, colleagues, and children," the sheriff's office said. "Dax dutifully responded to hundreds of service calls, leaving an indelible mark on our community."

Recently retired, Dax lived out his remaining days with his handler.

"As we mourn the loss of Dax, we kindly ask for your thoughts and prayers during this challenging period," the BCSO said. "In the upcoming days, we will honor his legacy with a memorial service befitting his remarkable service and companionship."
