KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — The Klamath County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) has bid farewell to one of their veteran K9s. “Ex” passed away at his home and surrounded by family on Thursday, March 15.
Ex was 11.5-years-old and had served with the KCSO for 10 of those years. He started working with the Sheriff’s Office in March of 2008.
Sergeant Steve Lewis was Ex’s partner, and the two of them were responsible for many arrests during that long and successful career, according to the KCSO.
Ex was also a part of countless special details, community events, and interactions with the public—particularly young children.
The KCSO have expressed that Ex’s passing is not only a loss to the department, but to the community as a whole.
