Staff Report | February 6, 2023 4:57 PM

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office announced the passing of retired K-9 officer Grizzly late last week.

Cpl. Dave De La Rosa, who served as Grizzly’s handler and partner, said, “I have had many dogs over my lifetime but none as amazing as Grizzly. My family will miss you.”

Grizzly served the community through GCSO from 2016 to 2019 when he retired and went to live with De La Rosa and his family, whom the officer said will miss Grizzly’s presence. He also expressed appreciation for Grizzly looking out for him on the job.

“Thank you for protecting me as my partner at work… We were an awesome K9 team because of you Grizzly,” De La Rosa said.
