BRUNSWICK COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Over the weekend, K9 Officer "Clyde" of the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office died from natural causes.

Clyde worked with the bloodhound team along with his canine sister "Bonnie."  Clyde was under the supervision of Deputy Chris Powell who worked with him since his arrival.

"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," Powell said.

Clyde was donated to the BCSO in 2009 and was cared for by members of the office until he was ready for training.
