SALAMANCA, NY - A special memorial service was held in Salamanca Saturday for a local police K-9 known for faithfully serving his community.
Robin, a golden retriever, died earlier this month at the age of 12.
The cause of death is still unknown but the dog had recently overcome a battle with cancer. That's when he really captured the heart of the community.
He worked for both the Cattauragus County Sheriff's Office and the Salamanca Police Department.
The memorial for Robin was held at the Salamanca Fire Department. Those who attended shared stories and celebrated the life he had. When Robin wasn't helping out the police force he attended community events, made appearances at schools and libraries, and performed therapy work.
Robin was also a show dog and performed around the country.
