Fort Wayne Police K9 Bullet dies

Gary Griffith and Bullet

Fort Wayne Police officer Gary Griffith’s retired K9 partner Bullet has died. Born July 3, 2006, she joined the K9 Unit May 4, 2009 and retired Feb. 1, 2017 after spending her entire career with Griffith.

“She was a fantastic police work dog and a loyal partner to Gary,” Sgt. Bob Theurer of the K9 Unit said in a statement. “It is unfortunate that she is gone, but we were lucky to have known and worked with such wonderful animal. She will be missed by all that knew her. We take some comfort in that she is no longer suffering and has joined the many Police Service Dogs that have gone before her. I believe there is a special place for the Peace Keepers of the world that have passed on, and that is where Bullet will be waiting.
