MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – The Myrtle Beach Police Department announced one of its retired four-legged officers has died.

K9 Roscoe passed away earlier this month.

He served the Myrtle Beach community for eight years before retiring and living with his handler’s family.

“Roscoe was a once in a lifetime kind of dog that lived a Disney storied life,” said K9 Handler Harlow. “He was rescued by the Myrtle Beach Police Department where he became a narcotics detection K9.”

Not long after his retirement, he became the face of Harlow’s company Bird Dog Power Washing.

Harlow said Roscoe is the reason that the company works with local animal shelters to help keep them clean and provide them with supplies.

“Don’t take the time with your pets for granted because it goes by so fast. We miss you buddy, and you can rest easy now,” Harlow said.

Harlow said Roscoe touched so many lives and will be missed.
