The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office announced Tuesday that their K9 Officer named Clyde has passed away due to natural causes.

K9 Clyde was part of the bloodhound team along with his sister Bonnie, and deputies Josh Smith and Chris Powell.

"Clyde had a very unique personality.  He was a real go-getter.  He was happy and loving and all he wanted to do was to please.  He was a very hard worker, often working until he was too tired to go anymore.  He was a very talented tracker and assisted in many searches over the years.  This is a devastating loss for me.  He will always hold a special place in my heart and will be greatly missed," said Deputy Powell, Clyde's primary handler.

Clyde and Bonnie were donated to the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office in 2009. Clyde was fostered and cared for by deputies until he was ready for training.

Deputy Powell worked with Clyde since his arrival.
