HOQUIAM, Wash. – Police K9 “Enno” begins his cancer treatment today. Hoquiam Police Chief Jeff Myers said while the department will try to shrink the tumor with a veterinary specialist today, “We’re trying to treat him, and aggressively deal with this in the manner that he will obviously never return to work, but in the sense that as an officer of our department who’s spent countless hours on patrol, to try to make him comfortable as much as possible and honor the service that he’s given the city.”
After over 8 years with the department and countless arrests, the apprehension and narcotics dog is suffering from a malignant tumor behind his left eye, and has “retired” to his handler Sgt. Jeff Salstrom’s home. A private citizen has setup collections to help with Ennos care in his final days, donations for Enno can be made at any Timberland bank branch throughout the harbor.
Enno has worked cases spanning Grays Harbor and surrounding counties, including the shooting of then-State Patrol Trooper and now Pacific County Sheriff Scott Johnson.
