Suncoast: Deputies mourn the lost of their K9 Rino


It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of K9 Rino. After selflessly serving the community for 4 ½ years, he was recently diagnosed with bone cancer and retired on April 28th. His love for his work was evident in his successful apprehensions, removal of illegal narcotics off the street, and most importantly, keeping his partner Sergeant Doherty, safe. His work ethic was unmatched, and his connection with his partner is irreplaceable.
His fight ended peacefully June 19th with his partner by his side. We’ll take it from here.
