The 3-year-old dog, a Belgian Malinois named Spartacus, was found dead Monday night inside the K-9 handler's car, which was parked outside his home, Brittany Duncan, a Woodstock Police Department spokeswoman, said in a written statement.
A necropsy requested by the police department determined the cause of death was heat stroke, the statement said.
The statement did not detail why the car was parked at the handler's house nor did it say how long it had been parked there.
"The K9 handler is currently on administrative leave with pay pending the outcome of an internal investigation," Duncan said.
