LCSO K-9 to Continue Working Despite Metastatic Cancer Diagnosis
A K-9 officer with the Laramie County Sheriff's Office isn't letting cancer stop him from taking a bite out of crime.
The department in a Facebook post Monday evening shared the sad news that Arie's cancer has metastasized, despite a mass being successfully removed from his leg.
"Sgt. Grimm and Arie would like to thank everyone who donated and prayed to help with Arie's cancer treatment," the post reads.
While the diagnosis isn't what anyone had hoped for, Arie isn't letting it keep him from doing what he loves -- working with Grimm.
"Arie is most happy working and will continue to find dope and fugitives while he is able to," the post reads.
