K9 Shadow died immediately following a training exercise at the Ladson Fairgrounds.

Shadow had just finished being trained with a decoy and was placed in his handler's vehicle. Several minutes later his handler checked on him and noticed that Shadow was in medical distress. He was transported to a local animal hospital where he passed away.

The training exercise had been planned for the afternoon in an attempt to avoid the hottest portion of the day.

Shadow had served with the Hanahan Police Department for five years.

K-9 Shadow, you once cast your own 4 legged shadow as you helped your partners to fight crime and to save lives, and now you have been called to to your next post with your buddy, Corporal Travis Lanphere, to bring back some of Heaven's light into his eyes and warmth into his smile, and to comfort him every night as you curl up next to his heart ... until you meet again.
God Bless you all,

Royal Canadian Mounted Police
