K-9 Toby, a retired Arlington County Police dog, has unexpectedly passed away, the department announced on Twitter today.
Toby served Arlington from 2008-2013.
This is, unfortunately, at least the third Arlington K-9 to die early in recent years. In 2013, K-9 Dutch become suddenly ill and passed away while on the force. A year before that, K-9 Lobo passed away shortly after retiring.
