A police department in Kanawha County is mourning the loss of one of its K-9 police dogs.
Alley the German shepard worked with Dunbar Police and alongside Lt. Scott Elliott to protect the citizens of that area. She passed away earlier this week.
"Her (Alley's) selfless service saved many lives and brought justice to hundreds if not thousands of criminals. She will always be remembered as a K-9 that was gentle and loved children, but knew when to go into "work mode" and take action," according to a post on the Dunbar Police Department's Facebook page
The department asked that the public keep Elliott and his family in their prayers during this time. Alley served with Elliot and Dunbar police for more than a decade.
