K9 Sani died as the result of heat exhaustion while he and his handler tracked a group of drug mules west of Tucson, Arizona.

After tracking the group for approximately an hour K9 Sani began showing signs of distress. His handler abandoned the track and transported Sani to a veterinary hospital in Tucson. Sani underwent treatment for two days but was unable to recover.

Another canine team located the narcotics that K9 Sani had been tracking, but the traffickers were not apprehended.

K9 Sani had served with the United States Border Patrol for three years.

A K-9 shows signs very early that he is under heat stress and should not be worked to the point of death. This was totally stupid and preventable.
