Shared from the Neenah PD:
It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the passing of our retired K-9 Cedric, who passed peacefully on Monday at the age of 12, surrounded by his handler and his family.
Cedric was our very first K-9, and he and his partner, Investigator Chris Gorden, set the bar very high for the program! K-9 Cedric was a single-purpose narcotics dog who served the Neenah Police Department from 2012-2020.
Over his 8 years of service, he was part of 210 arrests! Cedric was also responsible for locating almost 12 pounds of methamphetamine, 64 pounds of marijuana, 373 grams of cocaine, 27 doses of LSD, 28 grams of MDMA, 100 grams of heroin, and seized over $80,000 in drug money.
In addition to being an outstanding working dog, Cedric was a wonderful partner and family pet whose soulful eyes could melt your heart with one glance. Cedric will be dearly and deeply missed by the Neenah Police Department and by his family.
Rest easy, Ceddy. We’ll take it from here.
