  Passing of Police Service Dog Brix

Jul 17, 2009 08:53 ET

DRPS is mourning the loss of long-serving police dog Brix . He was taken to the veterinarian on July 10th in poor health and the decision was made to end his suffering. Brix was 10-years-old and had served with DRPS for eight years.

Brix worked with his handler Detective Constable Peter MacDonald and the Canine Unit since May of 2001 when he began his career at the age of two. Up until his passing, Brix was still an active member of the unit and was about to enter retirement.

Brix worked tirelessly throughout his career by performing several security sweeps after 9-11, helping with countless bomb searches, aiding as security with high profile court cases as well as diplomatic visits to the area.

Brix was DRP’s first and only dog trained to deal with explosives and Titan will be the police service dog to take his position.

Our thoughts are with D/Cst. MacDonald and members of the Canine Unit as one of their beloved dogs is laid to rest.
