Roseville police mourn K-9 officer
By: ToLewis, The Press Tribune
The Roseville Police Department said goodbye to a veteran police dog last weekend. Drago, a German shepherd, was recently diagnosed with degenerative myelopathy, a canine disease similar to Multiple Sclerosis. He spent his last months at home with his handler, police officer Ron Goodpaster, and family until his death Sunday. Drago served the police department and Roseville community for five years as a police K-9 officer until his retirement last summer for health reasons.
