GREEN TWP., OH (WTXF) - An Ohio Police department is mourning the loss of one of their K-9s after it was killed in the line of duty.
K-9 Dino, of the Green Township Police Department, was working on tracking a possible abduction suspect Monday when he suddenly collapsed and stopped breathing.
Dino was rushed to the veterinary hospital but was unable to be revived.
The department says Dino’s death appears to be due to a medical event.
The 7-year-old Belgian Malinois/Shepherd mix had been with the department since 2011 and was trained in drug detection and tracking.
“He had a reputation as an outstanding police canine and very much loved his work. He will be sorely missed,” the department wrote on Facebook.
