The Last of the Big Three

From San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Deputy Rob Semillo, comes this photograph of Bentho, his K-9 partner:

Bentho, a Dutch Shepherd, is seven years old and has cancer. Semillo said Bentho is the last dog alive of a trio of K-9 teams called the “Big Three.” The others were Deputy Ryan Biedermann and his dog, Niko, who was accidentally shot by a U.S. Marshal, and Deputy Randy Johnson and his dog, Badjo, who died after a bout with aggressive cancer.

Semillo said Bentho has maybe a month to live, but he doesn’t plan to retire him until “the day he can no longer jump in the police car.”
