A police dog with the Reno Police Department has passed away.

Officials say police service canine "Johnny" was five years old, and served on the force for the past three years.

The German shepherd died on Sunday after having emergency surgery to clear an intestinal blockage.
 
His handler, Officer Dan Knox, says Johnny served faithfully and played an integral role in several important arrests.

Police say he will be missed by all who had the pleasure of working with him.
