JUAB COUNTY (News4Utah)- The Juab County Sheriff’s Office has lost one of their own.

K9 Officer “Zipp” passed away Thursday from complications of kidney failure.

Zipp was donated to the department in 2011 by Unified police.

During his career, Zipp had many drug arrests and helped in other arrests too.

His co-workers say Zipp was always gentle and friendly but knew when it was time to get to work.

Zipp retired in 2015 at the age of 10 and lived with his partner, Lt. Drake Underwood, where he became part of the Underwood family.

Juab County says he was loved by all and will be missed.
