We are saddened to announce that our beloved K9 Axel has passed away at the young age of 5. Axel experienced a blockage that caused internal damage, taking him from us on August 19.
Let's remember this four-legged hero and honor his handler, Officer Tyler Edwards, who is heartbroken over the loss of his partner. Officer Edwards said, “He is more than a dog, he is family. I have spent more time with him than my own wife and kids lately. He will be missed.”
Thank you, Axel. We are forever grateful for your service to the citizens of the City of Springfield.
