Scott Township Police Department officers said goodbye to one of their two K-9 officers on Friday.
Following a year and a half struggle with a terminal digestive disorder, Scott Township K-9 officer Eddy was euthanized. He was 7.
Eddy, a German shepherd, spent three years with the department working with Officer Jake Stephenson as a general patrol dog and narcotics dog.
“He was a good approachable dog. He was the pet around the station,” said Chief of Police James Secreet.
Scott PD acquired the dog as a donation from West View Police department after his handler was injured.
Six neighboring police departments as well as three K-9s gave a final salute to Eddy as he arrived at Greentree Animal Clinic Friday morning. There are no plans to replace the dog, Secreet said.
