A special member of the law enforcement community was remembered during a memorial service Thursday at the Lauderdale County Courthouse.
Sheriff's deputy, SGT Chris Swanner lost his canine partner, Nero, Oct. 9.
The two had worked together for about 2 and a half years.
"He was more of a family member than he was a partner," said Swanner. "I spent more time with him than my family. He has been missed quite a bit. Going back to work without him has been different. I was in a situation where I was wishing I had him with me."
Nero was a drug dog. Swanner said he was wonderful at what he did.
