'Valor became family.' Florida law enforcement officers bid a sad farewell to K-9

Deputy Jeff Andrews knew something was wrong when he looked down at his partner of six years. Valor was acting differently. “He started to slow down and wasn’t himself,” said the Hernando County sheriff’s deputy. “There was nothing we could do for him.” K-9 Valor passed away, unexpectedly, on March 15 after suffering a medical episode while on duty. It was later determined by veterinarians that Valor had lymphoma.
