A SWAT team dog from the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office underwent surgery on a twisted small intestine and colon.
“K-9 Roman needs your prayers,” the sheriff said on social media.
According to the sheriff’s office, the surgeon resected most of the dog’s small intestine and 70% of the colon. Rome’s condition is stable, but blood pressure is low.
According to the sheriff’s office, the next three to five days of his recovery are “extremely important.”
Roman’s handler is Deputy Thai Zimmerman. The dog unit in the sheriff’s office started in 1986. Currently, 6 dogs are in use.
The sheriff’s office describes the Romans as “heroes.” Team members recently helped the agent arrest the alleged armed murderer.
2/2 surgeons say the next 3-5 days are extremely important. If Roman gets over it, they believe he will recover completely. This K-9 is a hero and a SWAT dog who arrested an armed murder suspect two days ago. Keep praying for Rome and his handler, Deputy Zimmerman.
