Rose didn’t survive the shooting, but his K-9 partner, Wolverine lived and is now struggling with the death of his partner.

It was Wolverine that lead the procession into the massive Ford Field as hundreds of people came to pay their respects to the fallen officer on Wednesday.

The killing of such a well-liked officer was difficult for the community, but it was his partner, Wolverine that took it especially hard.

Wolverine had a hard time seeing his partner in the casket and tried to pull away according to reports. Officers and their K-9 partners create incredible bonds, and it was visibly stressful and difficult for Wolverine to lose his partner.

Wolverine wasn’t alone, the K-9 Unit came out in full force with over 100 other dogs to support and honor their fellow fallen officer, Collin Rose.

Rose also left behind a girlfriend he wanted to marry and is the third police officer killed in Detroit in less than two months.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with the funeral expenses for the Rose family that reached the goal of $70,000 in one week. –
