Serving the Granite State for the last seven years, she was put to rest after a long fight.

Sad news from the New Hampshire Fish & Game's Law Enforcement Division.

According to their Facebook page, Ruby, an 8 year-old member of the K-9 unit has  passed. Ruby was sick over the past several months. She saw many veterinary experts and underwent numerous tests and medical treatments in an effort to cure her ongoing issue with loosing proteins, weight and muscle mass.

Ruby was put to sleep with the Law Enforcement’s Division longtime friend Doctor Fritz of Peterborough.

Since 2012, Lieutenant Bill Boudreau and K-9 Ruby have been patrol partners in the southwestern part of New Hampshire. The team were nationally certified in fish and wildlife detection, human tracking and evidence and article detection after successfully completing an intensive police K-9 training program.

Chief of Law Enforcement at NH Fish and Game Colonel Kevin Jordan said “While we will dearly miss this team’s skills and abilities, it is little Ruby’s personality and energy level we will miss the most here at Fish and Game, she was loved by all who met her.”
