ZIONSVILLE, Ind. — The Zionsville Police Department is remembering one of its own after the unexpected death of K-9 Thor.

In a Facebook post, police said the 6-year-old Belgian Malinois died from an unforeseen medical issue.

Thor, who came to the department from Hungary, was specially trained as a dual-purpose K-9 in narcotics detection and tracking.

He served four-and-a-half years with his first handler, Detective Jacob Shelburne, and most recently with Officer Cameron Smith.

"K-9 Thor will be greatly missed by the officers of ZPD and the community of Zionsville," the department concluded in the post.

The department added a new dog, named Mika, to the K-9 unit in December 2020.
