RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) – This morning, January 1st, the Reno Police Service Canine Xero has passed away at his handler's place in North Reno.
Xero's passing was a result of complications with a medical condition. Xero was partnered with Reno Police Officer Steven Mayfield in June of 2007 and was instrumental in locating large amounts of drugs, and in the arrests of those suspected of selling drugs.  Xero also spent many hours at police canine demonstrations with local children who enjoyed his loving disposition.

Many types of purebred dogs suffer from brain tumors such as Boxers, German Shepards, and Golden Retrievers etc. The first signs are seizures. Meds don't work after a while. He could have had an incurable blood disease.
