Ricky Bobby Posted August 29, 2018 Share Posted August 29, 2018 DETROIT - A Detroit police dog died after a patrol car's heat-alarm system failed. Commander Darin Szilagy tells the Detroit Free Press that the officer should have been checking on Vito, a German shepherd, every 30 minutes, "no matter what." The officer has been assigned to other duties and is awaiting possible discipline. Szilagy says the officer had rigorously trained with the dog and has been "distraught" over the death. He had left Vito unattended while picking up another vehicle, according to the Associated Press. The Detroit Police Department could not be reached for further comment.
