BUTLER, Pennsylvania — The Butler City Police Department is mourning the loss of a K-9 that died over the weekend.

Police Chief Bob O’Neill says K-9 Gunner seemed to be feeling ill on Thursday evening so his handler, Lt. Grooms, took the dog to the veterinarian, according to KDKA-TV.

The vet found that Gunner had many irreparable internal issues and was laid to rest at the hospital.

According to O’Neill, Gunner had been with the police department for several years and helped officers take a wanted suspect into custody without incident just a few days before he died.

Condolences can be sent to the following address:

The police department is also accepting donations to their K-9 fund to help the city acquire a new K-9 officer. Donations can be sent care of the Butler City Police Canine fund.
