Calgary police are mourning the loss of canine unit member Cisko, they announced on Monday.
The police dog passed away at home due to a medical condition at the age of seven, the service said in a social media statement.
Cisko was described as a strong athlete, professional hunter and a fan of jelly beans, according to the 2018 Calgary police canine calendar.
Cisko was born in the Czech Republic and started his training with the Calgary police in the summer of 2012. He was certified in four months alongside his handler.
“[Cisko] will always be remembered for his intensity, free spirit, and mischievous personality," read the CPS Facebook statement on his death. "He remained diligent and served the members of the Service and the citizens of Calgary throughout each and every shift and was loyal to the end. PSD Cisko will be greatly missed.”
