DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - An investigation is underway after two police dogs were found dead inside an unmarked SUV parked outside a Hialeah police officer’s home.

Hialeah police say K-9 Officer Nelson Enriquez arrived at his home in Davie early Wednesday after completing his midnight shift and apparently left the dogs inside his vehicle. Investigators say the officer found the dogs around 7 p.m.

Davie police Sgt. Pablo Castaneda says his agency responded to a call from the home and found the two dogs.

The SUV was towed from the home late Wednesday. Davie police are handling the investigation.

The dogs were Jimmy, a 7-year-old bloodhound, and Hector, a 4-year-old Belgian Malinois.

Hialeah police say Enriquez is a 13-year veteran of the department and has been a K-9 handler for seven years.
