K-9 Chance was a treasured member of the Houston County Sheriff's office. After a great service to the department, he recently retired. And was replaced by K-9 Ray.

K-9 Ray tragically died after being hit by a vehicle on Wednesday.

On a Facebook post, the sheriff's office wrote, "we appreciate his service. K-9 Ray... rest in peace. You will be sadly missed."

He lived with his handler Lt. Trace Erickson. No other details are available.
