Brave K-9 dog
It happened in 2014 when Kye who was a Belgian German Shepherd, helped his owner in catching a knife-wielding thief. The dog got injured when he was chasing the criminal and that's when the office Ryan Stark shot the suspect at the moment. He was immediately taken to the emergency but it had already gotten too late for that. His wounds were too deep for him to stay alive so he passed away right there and they decided to organize a ceremony for him.
It was a funeral unlike we have seen anything ever before as thousands of people, canine handlers and service dogs attended it. It was already getting way too emotional but when the flag from his casket was presented to the sergeant and everybody broke down into tears. Moreover, he was also given a 21-gun salute as a way of saying thank you for his services. It was really emotional and now Ryan Stark has got a new K-9 named Kayne that is a German Shepherd for Slovakia.
