NAPLES, Florida -- A Collier County Sheriff's Office K9 died earlier this month after undergoing a medical procedure from which he did not recover.
The K9, Ajax, was handled by Cpl. Eugene Shakuro. The K9 provided security for President Donald Trump during his Sept. 14 visit to Collier County following Hurricane Irma, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Shakuro and Ajax spent numerous hours working together, and the team completed their patrol/detection course last year.
"K9 Ajax had a great personality and an outstanding drive to want to work," the Sheriff's Office said on its Facebook page.
Ajax was 2½ years old.
