Boone County Sheriff Department mourns loss of K-9
BOONE COUNTY - The Boone County Sherriff Department is mourning the loss of one of its K-9's after it had to be euthanized Tuesday.
Brix, a nine-year-old German Shepherd, had served the department since 2009. His handler was Lieutenant Philip Smith.
Over the course of his career, Brix helped make multiple arrests involving illegal drugs and captured many suspects who fled from police officers.
Brix had recently diagnosed with cancer and was euthanized Tuesday by a local veterinarian.
