The unexpected death of one of the police dogs at the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office has the department looking for a new canine. “Dar" was a 6 year old male German Shepherd who unexpectedly was found dead at his home with Deputy Brad Wright on Saturday. Captain Tim Edwards says its a hard loss for everyone, especially Deputy Wright. “They were partners for four years. Dar lives with Deputy Wright, so not only work every day, but went home together every night. They had a real close bond. He was part of the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office family and Crook County Sheriff's Office family. "Dar" and Deputy Wright worked together at the Crook County Sheriffs Office for three years, before moving to Deschutes County last year. They don't know the cause of Dar's death, but believe it was some unknown medical issue. The Sheriff's Office will start its search for a replacement.
