A YEAR AGO...the Kennesaw Police Department and the Kennesaw community said our last farewell to a faithful and fearless warrior, K9 Bady.
For those who do did not know K9 Bady or his time with us;
"K9 Bady was born 5/1/2005 in Slovakia. Imported by and purchased from Shallow Creek Kennels in Sharpsville, Pennsylvania, K9 Bady was an active Police Canine with the City of Kennesaw from Oct 2006 til April 2013. I did not keep a scoreboard of his accomplishments in apprehensions, tracks, and narcotic finds, etc, because his impact on our community as an ambassador for our department is immeasurable. He was an impressive Canine and had a great career .. and I will miss him," wrote K9 Handler Officer Bud Morton- friend, partner, and family member.
K9 Bady, retired from working service from Police Department in 2013. Yesterday was his last day with us. It was painful to watch a once strong warrior of a canine be reduced by time to a very weak and frail shell of his former self. K9 Bady didn't know he was old, but Officer Morton knew he was in constant pain. "His health has deteriorated so badly this week that I have decided the most humane thing I can do for him is to end any further suffering." K9 Bady loved riding in his patrol car so Officer Morton brought him in to have one last day of being a ‘Police Dog’.
K9 Bady took his last ride on May 18, 2017 at 1900 hours, accompanied by all his friends and loved ones.
May you always Rest In Peace, K9 Bady 💙
