TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department said goodbye to one of its own.

K-9 Officer Kilo was euthanized because a spinal cord injury had left his back legs paralyzed.

Sheriff's department officials said Kilo was hurt off-duty as he chased a toy in his backyard and specialty veterinarians could not do anything to heal his injury.

Police said Kilo and his partner were one of the most productive narcotics teams in department history.
