The two-year-old yellow Labrador, named Totti, was found in the squad car at Rockview state prison near Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, last Thursday, according to authorities.

Sgt Chad Holland, the K-9’s handler, had stored training items in the vehicle at the end of the exercise and didn’t realize the animal was locked inside, said Amy Worden, spokeswoman for the state Department of Corrections.

Holland put the equipment in the car at 12.15pm but did not know Totti was still in the vehicle until 2.44pm, Worden told Penn Live.

Dog handlers and other staff tried to cool the K-9 with a water hose and ice and took him, still conscious, to a nearby veterinary clinic, but he died that night.

The department said Totti’s death ‘has been very devastating for everyone involved’.

Totti was a member of the state Department of Corrections Drug Interdictions Unit.
