A K9 with the Kettering Police Department died Monday, just two weeks after being certified by the department.

The two-year-old German shepherd named TJ went into cardiac arrest following a dental procedure, said Ron Roberts, a department public information officer.

TJ had great potential as a police K9 and would have had a great career serving the residents of Kettering," the KPD wrote on its Facebook page.
