Bobby’s handler wrote the following.
“Bobby licenced as an Explosive Detection Dog in 2021. Sadly Bobby’s career was a short one and following a short illness he passed away just 2 days before his 2nd birthday.
Although his life was heartbreakingly short he had such a huge positive effect on everyone.
Bobby wasn’t just a police dog he was a much loved member of our family. Whilst he may have been a little dog he had a massive personality and touched the hearts of everyone he met. He will be very sorely missed by Michele and myself.”
