HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind. — Police at an Indiana sheriff’s office are mourning the loss of one of their own after a K-9 died.

The Hendrick’s County Sheriff’s Office announced the passing of K-9 Cade Friday, FOX 59 reported. Cade was tracking a suspect Tuesday when he started to develop symptoms related to the extreme heat.

The sheriff’s office said Cade was taken to a veterinarian and transferred to another facility after being stabilized. Authorities said the K-9’s condition got worse overnight and he was unable to recover. Cade died on July 4th, the sheriff’s office said.

“K9 Cade was a dearly loved member of our community and will be sorely missed by many. K9 Cade will be especially missed by Deputies Chandler and Caffee, both of which were handlers of Cade through his tragically short career with the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office,” the sheriff’s office said.

Cade had been working with the department since on Oct. 1, 2014. The department said he was deployed nearly 400 times, and was credited along with his handler for saving the life of a man experiencing a medical crisis.

“Thank you, K9 Cade, for your years of service you provided to the citizens of Hendricks County and great memories you gave to us all,” the sheriff’s office said.
