Cedar Hill Pet Memorial Project, Inc.
A promise made...a promise kept
The active or retired Police, Fire, Military, U.S. Customs, Search & Rescue K9s honorably laid to rest in The Heroes Section at the Cedar Hill Pet Memorial Park. As they are featured on the Home Page, they will be moved here.
Police K9 Dog, Gage was the FIRST canine to be honored in the Hero's Section of The Cedar Hill Pet Memorial Park. Gage was a Belgium Malinois. He was born in Holland in 2006. He offered distinguished service to police departments in South Lake and Grand Prairie. Gage retired from the Mansfield PD in 2013.
At the time of his passing, "Gage was retired Patrol and Narcotic Detection Dog for the Mansfield Police Department where he served from March 2012 to September 2013. The traits that are evident in all service dogs are many, such as hard-working, confident, protective, alert, active and yes, STUBBORN, but there is a common thread that ties each of them together with their handler and being a LOYAL and DEPENDABLE team player is a must! For anyone who has loved a dog knows the bond that exists between themselves and their four legged companion. It has been said that we tend to resemble the pet that we select so just maybe our pet absorbs some of our traits as well. It was jokingly stated that Gage picked up a few habits from his handler and partner. He loved to be loved on, and when he had his favorite toy, he was in his own world! ALL dogs are special but these five K9s that lie in the Hero's Section of The Cedar Hill Pet Cemetery are truly special!
