Cougar’s handler wrote the following.
“Cougar joined me at Cleveland Police and began his service as a Trainee police dog on 23/10/2020. He successfully licensed as a General Purpose PD on 05/03/2021 and served his community until his passing.
PD Cougar was a big dog with an even bigger heart. Very balanced and had a great on/off switch and a great nose. His strengths were his ability to search and tracking.
Sadly, he suddenly became unwell and passed away due to illness.
He was my first dog since joining the dog section and was very special to me.
He was taken much too soon and will always be missed.”

Will went to his handler at the age of 12 weeks. He was a huge dog and had the drive and heart to match his size.
His handler said
“Will’s passing was so sudden, I had planned the rest of my time around him and retiring with him. He was a fantastic dog with great potential and remained balanced, he was a great role model for the pups in my role as an instructor.
He is greatly missed by us all”
