Our 4th and final retired dog we’d like to introduce is Nero. Nero was born on March 13th, 2005 in the Czech Republic. He is a German Shepherd/Belgian Malanois mix. Nero came to the CCSO when he was 1.5 years old. He is cross trained for both patrol and narcotics work with Sgt. Brad O’Neil.
Before his retirement this month, Nero put in almost 10 years of service to the citizens of Clackamas County.
During this time, Nero has been the star of his own comic book series (Mik and Nero Comic Books) and he also modeled for artist Rip Caswell in order to make a real life scale statue for the Clackamas County Peace Officer Memorial.
In his retirement, Nero enjoys being able to spend time inside the house with Sgt. O’Neil chewing on his kong at the ripe old age of 11.5 years old.
Active Service 2009 – 2016
Our third retired K-9 we’d like to introduce is “Kilo”. Kilo was born on August 1st, 2008. As a puppy, she was purchased by Master Trainer Deputy Hilary Robinson as a personal pet. Deputy Robinson saw huge potential in her at a very young age and started training her in both patrol and narcotics detection.
At the age of 9 months, Kilo was state certified for both patrol and narcotics and started working for the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office. This would prove to be the youngest any dog in the state had been certified to work as a police dog.
Kilo worked with Deputy Robinson until she retired in November of 2013. In December of 2013, Deputy McCafferty took over handling Kilo. Kilo is now living with Deputy McCafferty and his family in the Clackamas area. Her favorite things to do when she’s relaxing around the house is playing with her stuffed animals.
