K-9 Blek, a German shepherd, was only weeks away from retirement, the department told KVAL TV.

According to Chief Pete Kerns, “Blek has been a go-to dog for our department. He enjoyed a storied career and had a warrior’s spirit. His passing is crushing for his family and he will be missed by us all.”
