The Jasper County Sheriff's Office is mourning the loss of a K9 officer. 

The sheriff's office says the two-year-old Belgium Malinois, Doki, died after a department vehicle malfunctioned, causing it to run hot and the temperature to rise to an unsafe level. Doki was rushed to a veterinary hospital but later died due to heat exhaustion. 

Officials with the sheriff's office are asking for prayers for Doki's handler, as well as for the department, during this time of loss.
