On Sunday, August 28th hundreds of people attended the Oklahoma City funeral held in honor of K9 Kye, a 3-year old Belgian German Shepherd that died as a result of injuries sustained in the line of duty. Kye was sent off with full police honors.

More than 1,000 people and dozens of service dogs attended the funeral service last week for Kye, a 3-year-old Belgian German Shepherd that was stabbed to death by the suspect.

Kye’s partner since serving on the police department’s K-9 unit, Sgt. Ryan Stark, shed tears and expressed a final farewell to the dog before his flag-draped coffin was buried and the canine was given out a 21-gun salute.
