The following is a statement released on Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page. Watch a video of K9 Ruddick home with his handler Sergeant Joey DeMarco here:
On 11-06-20 K9 Ruddick was discharged from VCA PetCare East Veterinary Hospital in Santa Rosa.
Ruddick was reunited with his longtime partner, Sergeant Joey DeMarco, and is recovering at home at this time.
Ruddick has been fighting against reoccurring symptoms of infection since his surgery and will be re-evaluated by VCA PetCare East Veterinary Hospital doctors early next week.
In the meantime, Ruddick and Sergeant DeMarco are enjoying their reunification in hopes of good news next week.
The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank all that have expressed well wishes during Ruddick’s medical emergency and for the ongoing support of the Sheriff’s Office K9 program.
The Sheriff’s Office would also again like to thank the staff at VCA PetCare East Veterinary Hospital for their warm caring personalities and high level of professionalism.
