From the Huffington Post:

An Ohio police dog will be laid to rest as a hero after being fatally shot while responding to a burglary early Saturday morning, authorities said.


The body of Jethro, a K-9 with the Canton Police Department, was seen being saluted as he was carried out of an animal hospital and into an awaiting vehicle Sunday evening, according to a video released by the Police K-9 Association.


The nonprofit group, which assists K-9 programs, previously posted a photo of what appears to be Jethro’s body beneath an American flag.


The canine, who was shot four times, was pronounced dead Sunday morning, his department announced.
