COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — El Paso County Search & Rescue is mourning the loss of two K9s.

Sheriff’s deputies said Ruffian, the senior and most experienced K9 on the team, died of old age earlier this year. Tucker died unexpectedly on November 9.

“Tucker, the ‘crazy one,’ and Ruffian ‘the old man,’ hold a very special place in the hearts of the Search & Rescue team and those they touched,” the sheriff’s office said on their Facebook page. “They are missed deeply.”
