DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office is investigating after one of their K-9 officers died over the weekend, possibly from the heat.

Major John Garrison said they were still trying to figure out exactly what killed the dog, but heat may have been a factor.

A necropsy will be performed sometime this week.
