Officers in the Cotati Police Department are mourning the death of D'Jango, the department's only Police K-9 dog. The dog partnered with officer Chris Kaupe since October 2005 and was most recently trained in narcotics detection. "Officer Chris Kaupe and his son took D'Jango to a nearby park for some exercise and to play fetch. D'Jango suddenly fell to his side and was found to be in respiratory distress," states a release issued by the Cotati Police Department Thursday.
The dog, a Belgian Malinois, was taken to the Emergency Care center in Rohnert Park. He was put down later that night when it was determined there was no chance for survival. In addition to narcotics detection, D'Jango was trained in suspect detection, property searches, tracking, building searches, and handler protection.
