Did his dog friend live or did he pass? I heard different stories.

Officer Fox's partner, Nick, is alive and well. He was treated for a bullet graze wound after the incident. When last we checked in, the county was working to cut through the red tape to make sure Nick could continue to live with the Fox family.
