It is with great sadness that Capital K9s informs you that K9 Greg passed away on Saturday, December 16, 2016. Officer O’Shea previously informed Capital K9s of K9 Greg’s deteriorating health.
Police Officer Bart O’Shea and K9 Greg proudly served the citizens of Madison from 2005 to 2010. K9 Greg was one of the
Madison Police Department’s original K9s. He and K9 Johnny were the first two dogs purchased by Capital K9s. K9 Greg and K9 Johnny were sponsored by the generous donations of WJJO FM (Mid-West Family Broadcasting) and were named after the well- known morning disc jockey duo of Johnny Danger & Greg Bair.
In Officer O’Shea’s words: “K9 Greg had multiple apprehensions, with seven of those bite apprehensions. K9 Greg had a great personality, always ready to work, but equally willing to let 5-year- olds crawl all over him. His career highlights were the multiple apprehensions and alerting to 41 kilograms of cocaine in the attic of a search warrant target. It was a delight to be his handler and K9 Greg was definitely the smarter end of the leash”.
