A Roseville K-9 officer stabbed while on duty is recovering at the Animal Trauma Center at the University of Minnesota’s Veterinary Medical Center.
“They saved Major’s life. There’s no doubt about that,” said Roseville Officer John Jorgenson.
Major, a 9-year-old German Shepard, has been on the force with his human partner for more than seven years. The two were helping on a call in Maplewood when the dog was attacked by a suspect.
Officer Jorgenson brought Major to the Trauma Center where doctors, nurses and surgeons jumped into action to save the dog.
“He had no motor function in his hind legs for about the first week after surgery,” said Dr. Nate Rose.
