Description

**** I credit the following, for their musical contributions: Bryan Adams- Never let go, Puff Daddy - I'll Be missing You, Israel Kamakawiwo - Somewhere Over the Rainbow********** This is a tribute to the life of Summerville Police K9 PANTO. He was a warrior till the end. I hope that when people view this, they come to understand, just how dynamic a K9 really is. As he is not a vicious animal, that's used to attack people. But a true partner, that had many talents. Most of which, was the love and affection he showed his family. On the 21st of January 2014, the citizens of Summerville lost a true hero and I lost a family member. But he will never be forgotten. TY to SPD for believing in me and letting me live my dream. TY to Dr. Leeven, of Nemasket Veterinary, for saving his life twice :-) and most of all, the men, women and K9's walking the thin blue line every day. During Panto's career, he was certified 4 times as "Utility" (Highest achievement) by the North American Police Working Dog Association of America (NAPWDAA), Certified twice by The National Narcotic Detector Dog Association (NNDDA), found 2 missing children/vulnerable adults, tracked numerous criminals, numerous High risk warrants served, responsible for hundreds of narcotic arrests, responsible for numerous building searches, thousands of dollars in assets seized (19k biggest single hit), Many and I mean many, Non-Bite apprehensions (lol), many articles found (to include a bank bag and knife), Did assists for ATF, DEA, Dorchester County, Charleston County, SCHP, SCDOT, FBI and US Marshals and the many public demonstrations (mostly involving children). I'm sure I left a lot out, but that's just what I can think of at the moment. Thank you for viewing.
