The Farmington Fire Department is saying a sad goodbye to Hunter, a search dog who served the department.
Hunter died after suffering from muscle atrophy, according to the Hartford Courant.
He was 11 years old.
“Although Hunter did not work long for the fire department due to his medical condition he did perform a few searches for both the FD and PD. He also worked for a private investigation firm working a political cold case here in CT. Hunter taught me how to be a better K9 handler and trainer," his handler, Deb Monde, said in a post on the Farmington Fire Department’s Facebook page.
