K-9 Deputy Lee
Birth: 2002, Czech Republic
Death: Jan. 21, 2013
Pasco County
Florida, USA



Lee was a 10-year old canine deputy for the county of Pasco, Florida. For most of his life he served alongside Deputy Robert Wilkins. He was like a shadow, always by his side.

The death of Lee is very difficult for Deputy Wilkins, who had the black German shepherd since he was a puppy.

Wilkins and his canine partners have been honored frequently by the Sheriff's Office throughout his career for heroic measures taken to save lives and track lost citizens. Canine Lee worked for seven years with Wilkins on road patrol and in narcotics investigations.

K-9 Deputy Lee was excitable while at work but calm at home

He loved to play and would place his toys in front of anyone. He was a high energy dog with a lot of drive.

At home he would put his head on anyone's lap who was sitting on the couch.

During the night he would check on his family, nudging them with his nose, until they stirred. He made it his job to make sure all is well.

On the day he died, he refused water and food. That night he passed away.

Lee died due to a tumor on his spleen. Given only 6 months to live, he passed away the same week of his prognosis.

The next day, Monday morning, his family checked on him and found that Lee had died during the night.

Lee died due to a tumor on his spleen. Given only 6 months to live, he passed away the same week of his prognosis.

He leaves an empty space in the lives of his human family and will always be remembered.
