K9 Ajax was drowned while attempting an apprehension of a burglary suspect behind 4447 West 192nd Street in Kissimmee, Florida.
He had been performing a track when his lead became tangled in thick brush. As his handler attempted to free the lead Ajax alerted on the suspect and broke free of the lead. He pursued the subjects further into the woods and failed to return to his handler.
Both subjects were arrested, one of whom had dog puncture marks on his arm.
Ajax's body was located in the canal following a six-hour search.
K9 Ajax had served with the Osceola County Sheriff's Office for four years.
