Cop Says Goodbye To K9 Partner Who Succumbed To Heat Exhaustion In Line of Duty

Police departments around the world rely heavily on K9 officers to help assist with drug searches, tracking, criminal takedowns, and more.

Senior Corporal Chris Duhon is one of those officers who formed a very special bond with his K9, named King.

The 7-year-old Belgian Malinois recently helped Sr. Cpl. Duhon search for a domestic violence suspect in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.

Sadly, K9 King suffered from heat exhaustion and died from complications related to it.

On his Facebook page, Sr. Cpl. Duhon shared a photo of K9 King’s body draped in an American flag. Along with the heartbreaking image, he wrote, “Rest easy son, if there’s a heaven for heroes, you’re there as the most beautiful of Gods creation, Man’s best friend, my best friend. In 1,000 lifetimes I’ll never deserve you.”
