DeSoto County deputies held a ceremony for a fallen K-9 member Wednesday.

Shadow died from cancer late last week. He was buried during a ceremony attended by several other officers and K-9 units.

Shadow has competed in the American Working Dogs K-9 Olympics four different times.

Deputies say Shadow was responsible for several take downs over his years of service.

Deputies created a plaque in Shadow's honor displaying the inscription "Dedicated To The End."
