A retired Bend Police Department K9 named Amor has died at the age of 14.
The German shepherd worked with Bend Police Officer Leo “Lucky" Lotito from 1999 through 2008. Amor had 268 suspect apprehensions and more than 40 evidence finds. After Amor's retirement, Lotito and his family cared for the dog.
Much of Amor's veterinarian costs were taken care of by The Friends of K9, an organization that helps retired police dogs with expenses. Those interested in donating to Friends of K9 can visit the city of Bend's web site.
