Bruno, a K-9 German Shepherd was chasing a suspect in March of 2014 with his partner Officer RJ Young. What no one knew would happen is the suspect shot Bruno at point blank range to the face. Bruno is a 6-year veteran K-9 officer of the Anaheim, CA, police force
The suspect was killed by the return gunfire and Officer Young had to watch as his partner and best friend was taken down. He was quoted telling ABC News, “[He was shot] point blank, it was a horrific thing to have to watch. My entire world came tumbling down in the matter of a second.”
Can you even imagine??? Watching your furry best friend be SHOT??! It’s too horrific and terrifying to think about, but for Officer Young, it was a risk of the job and a nightmare all the same.
