The Yarmouth Police Department posted on their Facebook page yesterday and gave us some good news following the death of K9 Officer Sean Gannon (Posthumously promoted to Sergeant). K9 Nero went home on the same day that his handler was laid to rest.

"At the end of one of the most emotional and saddest days, and six-day period in American and Yarmouth Police Department history, our beloved 4-legged partner K9 Nero was released from his hospital and was taken his fallen partner Sergeant Sean M. Gannon's cruiser.

We thank all of the loving and devoted employees at Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists in Dennis and Bourne who helped rescue and save this innocent animal's life---especially retired Yarmouth Police K9 Handler Peter McClelland, who entered the home after Nero was shot and has never left his side as he stayed with him in the hospital for 144 hours straight.

K9 Nero will stay with Officer McClelland--who loves Nero and is a close friend of the Gannon Family--until he fully heals and then will return to the Gannon family when everyone is ready.

Rest In Peace Sean, your beloved K9 Nero is home."
