On Wednesday morning, March 23rd, a very special young boy got a surprise visit from all the K9 units with the Racine Police Department and Mount Pleasant Police Department. Daxton loves police officers and K9’s.
In October of 2015 the Racine Police K-9 Unit teamed up with the Mt. Pleasant PD, and Racine County Sheriffs Department for a calendar fundraiser. The Racine PD K-9 Unit was contacted by the mother of Daxton LaRue. His mother requested that one of our Handlers personally deliver Daxton’s calendar to him. On October 15th, K-9 TITAN and his Handler made a special trip over to deliver the calendar and take a photo with Daxton. Since then, TITAN paid a visit to Daxton’s classroom. On March 15th we received a message from one of Daxton’s family members that on March 10th Daxton was diagnosed with Leukemia. He recently received his first dose of chemo and was released from Children’s hospital on March 14th. His family member asked if a K-9 would stop by to put a smile on his face amid some very scary times. Well we did it…and then some.
Today the Racine Police, and Mount Pleasant Police Department K-9 Units made a special trip over to Daxton’s house where he was presented with several gifts from the Teams and the Chief of Police. The looks on his face are priceless!! Enjoy the pictures, and share this story!The story will be on their site as well.
Please go to a website set up for Daxton.
