Terminally Ill Dog Becomes Honorary K-9 Officer

Eddie Terminally Ill Dog

A terminally ill dog named Eddie fulfilled part of his bucket list Monday when he was named an honorary police K-9 for a Washington police department.

Dressed in a yellow Pasco Police Department K-9 uniform, the gray and white pit bull was sworn in and began his duties by visiting businesses to collect items to benefit a local dog rescue group.

After Eddie was diagnosed with an inoperable tumor and given a window of 6 to 12 months to live, Mikey’s Rescue and Eddie’s foster mom came up with a bucket list for him. The Pasco Police Department stepped in to help make some of the bucket list wishes come true.
