A Baltimore County police dog that had been found to have a brain tumor was euthanized yesterday, bringing to four the number of animals from the department's canine unit that have died since February.The dog was one of three whose medical condition was referred to in September when police closed the canine facility for environmental testing. Two other dogs that had been found to have cancer were euthanized earlier this year. The body of another police dog, who died Dec. 2, has been sent to the University of Maryland for a necropsy to determine the cause of death. The dog that died yesterday,
a 9-year-old German shepherd named Enno, was retired from the canine unit in March.
Eggy, age 12,
a GSD, was with the NCCPD for 5 years and
was a narcotics dog. Her handler, Joseph Blithe. After her retirement, Joey
gave her to Kevin Woerner [a NCCPD officer] and his wife, Elizabeth Woerner
Alderson. Eggy died at yesterday at 10 am. She had been living with Kevin.
Eggy was a real sweet girl. We loved it when she would come in to see us. We
would play with her. She was never without her ball and would whine when she
didnt have her ball. Once, after her retirement, she was visiting here and was
taken next door to where the officers themselves are stationed at. She "hit" on
the evidence locker, showing that she smelled drugs. Even though she was retired
for several years, she still remembered her training.
