EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. — The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office has announced the passing of K9 Blitz.

In a Facebook post Monday, the Sheriff’s Office said 7-year-old Blitz was taken to an emergency veterinarian over the weekend and it was discovered Blitz was suffering from medical issues beyond repair.

Blitz started his career with Deputy Younkin and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office in 2011.
