Floyd County Sheriff’s Office

The Floyd County Sheriff’s Office posted the following message on Tuesday morning:

“It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the passing of Deputy K9 Snickers, EOW 2-28-2022.

Snickers was born on February 1, 2012, in Florida. He was assigned to Deputy Williams in 2013 and was with him throughout his career. Since coming to the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office, it did not take long for him to become a staple in our department.

Snickers was very involved in this community, attending community events, and numerous school systems. He assisted in tracking and rescuing multiple people throughout the Southeastern part of the United States. It didn’t matter to Snickers if he was tracking a missing child, missing Alzheimer’s patient, or a murder suspect.

Snickers was always ready! Snickers and his nose saved many lives in his decade as a Deputy at the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office. Snickers touched many lives, he truly will be missed.

Please keep Deputy Williams, our department, and those that knew Snickers in your thoughts and prayers.”
