It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of former #SCCFD Arson Canine, Rosie.
Rosie served for 8.5 years as a Flammable Liquid Detection Canine, searching over 1250 fire scenes in and around Santa Clara County, leading to at least 34 convictions. Rosie also served as part of the ATF National Response Team, responding to 9 career callouts.
After her retirement in May, 2012, Rosie enjoyed an active and comfortable retirement with her partner and Chief Arson Investigator (Ret.), Dennis Johnsen.
Rosie was a beloved part of our Santa Clara County Fire family and will be missed by all. #2K9
