VIDEO: Portland K-9 Slain Saving Shot Handler

A K-9 named Mick whose human partner was shot and wounded early Wednesday morning in Southwest Portland, Ore., was found dead from gunshot wounds after a widespread search involving police, bloodhounds, area residents and even TriMet bus drivers, reports KGW.com.

"Mick saved my life," said the dog's partner, Portland Police Officer Jeff Dorn.

The German Shepherd vanished after the officer-involved shooting, according to Portland police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson. The dog had been wearing a specialized K-9 police harness, but not a bullet-proof vest.

Dorn was shot in both legs by the 20-year-old suspect and was recovering at Legacy Emanuel Hospital Wednesday afternoon. He is a 16-year veteran of the Bureau.
