Moose, a beloved Yorktown Police Department K9 Officer has died at the age of 14.

Yorktown police announced Moose's death on its Facebookk page.

Moose worked side-by-side with his K9 Handler, Sgt. Justin Foley, for nearly nine years, from 2006-2014.

While the police department mourns the loss of Moose, it celebrates his many achievements. Moose was instrumental in several arrests, as well as in assisting tracking missing persons.

" No one could clear a room / area and make it safe for all of us to do our work better than Moose." YPD said on its Facebook page. "Moose was also a friend to all in our Yorktown community, participating in many community outreach events. Moose was a great source of pride for our agency, and a beloved member of the Foley family throughout his lifetime. In the words of Sergeant Foley: 'Loyal companion, protector, fierce street dog when needed and a loving dog to my family and anyone else he would meet. The years flew by, but I am grateful for the opportunity and time I had with him. Rest easy partner.'"
