VIDEO: 2 K-9s Die in Vehicle at Florida Officer's Home

Police are investigating after two K-9s were found dead Wednesday inside a police vehicle parked outside the Davie, Fla., home of an off-duty Hialeah, Fla., K-9 officer, said Hialeah police spokesman Carl Zogby.

Hialeah police detectives and Davie police arrived at the home of Officer Nelson Enriquez regarding the death of his two assigned K-9 work dogs, Jimmy, a 7-year-old bloodhound, and Hector, a 4-year-old Belgian Malinois, reports WPLG.

Zogby said it appears Enriquez left the K-9s in his marked police vehicle parked in the driveway of his Davie house Wednesday morning as he returned home after completing his midnight shift.

Enriquez discovered the dead K-9s Wednesday evening and notified police.

Enriquez is a 13-year veteran of the Hialeah Police Department and has been a K-9 handler the past seven years. He was relieved of duty pending the outcome of the investigation.

wiow, really not one but two? This has happened in Az and the handler was charged with cruelty to animals. Im very supportive of other LEOS but really, two? at the very least this officer should pay the tens of thousands in training costs back to the city, be suspended of a long time and NEVER be able to be a K-9 handler again Period. Sad, what a bone head thing to do.
