VIDEO: Hero K-9 Honored at Emotional Texas Memorial

Officers from around North Texas packed a memorial Wednesday to pay respect to a Wise County Sheriff’s Department K-9 killed on duty.

Deputy Pepper, a Dutch Shepherd, was shot by a suspect after a manhunt one week ago.

Officers, including K-9s and their handlers from across North Texas, filled Grace Fellowship Church in Paradise for the emotional service, NBC DFW reports.

"When released and given the command to engage, Pepper did exactly what he was trained to do, he ran in front of us as we held our positions and he looked danger and ultimately death directly in the eyes," said Pepper's partner Sgt. J.T. Manoushagian.

Pepper is credited with saving five officers.

Misguided all the way. the dog has no soul and did what it was trained to do; it did not know honor, integrity, truth, justice, etc. It did what it was trained to do and this only puts animals on par with humans, which only bolsters the arguments that police K9's should not be utilized any longer. K9's help save police officers lives by sniffing out suspects and would have engaged and killed officers otherwise. A little ceremony at that department for the handler's benefit would be fitting, just to support the handler during the emotional time.

No amount of praise is too much for these incredible four legged officers and the job they do so selflessly. At least the scumbag that killed Pepper was also killed.
