BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Police Department is mourning one of their own today: K-9 Hydro.
In a Facebook post, Buffalo Police said Hydro died Sunday morning. He was 8 years old and had been with the police department since March of 2017.
Hydro first worked with officer James Duffy, who retired in 2018. Hydro has worked with Officer Steve Mikac since then.
A funeral service for Hydro on Saturday afternoon at Lombardo Funeral Home in Orchard Park. The ceremony included a Buffalo Police Honor Guard and custom license plates to remember Hydro's service.
A little more than two years ago, Buffalo Police announced that retired K-9 Duke had died. Duke had spent almost nine years with the department working alongside handler Dennis Kessler, helping the department find criminals and contraband.
