Yarmouth Police have announced that Nero was released tonight from the hospital.

At the end of one of the most emotional and saddest days, and six-day period in Yarmouth Police Department history, K9 Nero was released from the hospital and was taken home in his fallen partner Sergeant Sean M. Gannon’s cruiser.

Yarmouth Police Department thanked all of the loving and devoted employees at Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists in Dennis and Bourne who helped rescue and save Nero.  Especially retired Yarmouth Police K9 Handler Peter McClelland, who entered the home after Nero was shot and has never left his side as he stayed with him in the hospital for 144 hours straight.

K9 Nero will stay with Officer McClelland–who loves Nero and is a close friend of the Gannon Family–until he fully heals and then will return to the Gannon family when everyone is ready.
