Deputy Canine Rex Retires After 10 Years of Service

On Tuesday, March 26, 2024 Iredell County Sheriff’s Office announced Deputy Canine Rex has officially retired after 10 years of service. Canine Rex sustained an eye injury in the performance of his duties, which resulted in removal surgery. He is healing quickly with his partner of 6 years, Sergeant Caskaddon, by his side.

Although Canine Rex will be enjoying his new duties as a family pet, he will miss searching for narcotics, assisting in apprehending bad guys and locating people in need. But most of all he will miss the time spent with this human deputy squad.
