Help Bring K9 Sherri Home

As many of you know, David retired from law enforcement at the beginning of this year. His K9 partner of 2 years, Sherri, has lived with us from the time she was a puppy. We are the first and only family she has ever had. Although she was a working dog, she was also a member of our family.

We were hoping we would be able to adopt K9 Sherri due to some documented medical issues she had been having over the last year. We did not want to lose a member of our family. Unfortunately adoption was not made an option, and she was returned under medical warranty to her original vendor, out of state. 

Knowing that Sherri will live the rest of her life without her family is heartbreaking. She will be housed in the vendor’s on site kennels. This is a dog who slept in our bed under the blanket for the last two years. She wears sweaters and likes to be massaged with the Thera-gun. Her favorite snacks are white cheddar popcorn and watermelon chunks. She loves playing fetch and swimming in the pool. She was my husbands work partner and best friend. She was my fur baby and our son’s best bud.

We are the only family she has ever known and we know that she is confused and scared to be away from home around strangers. We cannot imagine a life without her. We reached out to the company in hopes of purchasing her and the vendor is willing to sell her back to us. While this is good news, it is a large sum of money. 

Although it is a large amount of money, we could never imagine abandoning her. We are hoping and praying that our friends, family, and community members can join us in raising support to bring Sherri home. If you feel so led, please donate so that we can be a family again. If you are not in a place to give, please share this fundraiser. We appreciate all the love and support we have had so far as we have had to navigate this emotionally taxing situation.
