Enno Celebrates 10th Birthday While Fighting Cancer
In an update from Hoquiam Police Sergeant Jeff Salstrom, he says today is Hoquiam K9 Enno’s 10th Birthday. Enno, born in 2003, has served as an apprehension and narcotics canine with Salstrom since 2005.
Salstrom said that over the New Year, Enno’s cancer rapidly spread and the department wasn’t sure he was going to make it, but after his treatment last Thursday, the outlook has turned positive.
Enno has been diagnosed with a rapidly growing malignant tumor behind his left eye. He began treatments in October. While his cancer has stabilized, it is apparent he only has a very short time left. Enno has retired from service as the city’s only K9.
