"K9 Vinn loved nothing more than coming to work with his officer and spending every night back home with his family," the department said on social media. "He lived out his glory years at home with his officer."

Vinn is described as being a "stubborn boy with a strong commitment to the people — and things — he took a liking to."

Vinn's favorite toy was a rubber alligator that officers called "Gator Bob."

"You were a good boy Vinn. Thank you for your service," the department said.
