Hunter, the K-9 Officer who worked with the Middletown Police Department for ten years, has been diagnosed with cancer. His partner Michael D’Aresta and their colleagues were saddened by the news. Hunter’s team wanted to express their love and appreciation for him on his last day.
Hunter was a devoted member of the community, who tirelessly worked to keep the neighborhood safe. Despite knowing the risks, he fearlessly served as a police officer, putting his life on the line every day. Unfortunately, Hunter’s time with the police force came to an abrupt end when he was diagnosed with a severe health condition. After several days of feeling unwell, tests revealed that he had developed an aggressive form of liver cancer. Tragically, the medical team could not save him, and he had to be euthanized. Sgt. Doug Clark shared the heartbreaking news in an online post. Hunter’s contributions to the community and the police force will never be forgotten.
D’Aresta faced a tough situation when he received the prognosis about his dear companion. Eventually, he had to take the difficult decision of putting him to sleep. However, he found comfort in the companionship of his colleagues who were by his side when he bid goodbye to Hunter outside the veterinary clinic. They paid their respects to the faithful police dog who had worked alongside them.
Clark expressed his admiration for Officer D’Aresta and his faithful K-9 colleague, Hunter, who have both displayed remarkable commitment to serving the Middletown community since 2007. Sadly, Hunter’s health has deteriorated, which has caused a lot of distress for Mike and his loved ones. Despite the fact that Middletown is not a large city, the police department’s touching farewell to Hunter has gained widespread attention beyond its borders, leaving a lasting impression that will be cherished for many years.
