YARMOUTH, Mass. — Six weeks after being shot by the man also charged with killing a Yarmouth police officer, K-9 Nero is continuing to get healthier and stronger.

The Yarmouth Police Department wrote in a Facebook post that the K-9 partner of slain Police Sgt. Sean Gannon remains on restricted activity, but is eating well and building his strength back.

The department posted a picture of Nero on his morning walk Friday.

Gannon and Nero were shot on April 12 while police served a warrant at a Marstons Mills home in Cape Cod.

Thomas Latanowich, 29, shot Gannon in the head and Nero in the face and neck, authorities said. He has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in court.

Once fully recovered, police said Nero will return to Gannon’s family. Gannon, 32, leaves behind his wife, Dara, his parents and a brother and sister.

“We thank everyone for the extraordinary support from around the world as we keep pushing forward with resolve and resiliency to bring the changes needed to keep us all safer,” the Yarmouth Police Department wrote.
