Koufax (Sanford von Koufax of Ebbets, American Kennel Club #DL886538/04, of El Shaddai’s Viking II and El Shaddai’s Amber) from complications from back surgery.
Koufax is survived by Alan and Marie Weiss and Buddy Beagle.
Also known as “Koufax the Wonder Dog” after unlocking a garage door from the inside to allow house sitters in, he appeared in over 150 videos, five books, scores of articles, and is the star of the weekly cartoon series “The Adventures of Koufax and Buddy Beagle.” The series will continue.
He passed away in the presence of his family and his physician. Although confined to a harness for several months, he was in good health until this morning. Koufax will be remembered as a beautiful animal (a rather rare white German shepherd), having a great disposition with children, being a highly effective hunter who actually caught squirrels, and serving as an outstanding companion.
The will be a private ceremony. The family requests that NO letters, emails, or calls of condolence be made. Those who wish to honor his memory should consider a contribution to the East Greenwich Animal Protection League, Box 184, East Greenwich, RI 02818.
