“He was such a loyal crime fighting partner, as well as a best friend to my children,” Senior Sergeant MacKenzie said.

“As a family, we raised Kadar from eight weeks of age until he commenced working with me formally after completing his training in 2014.

“He was an exceptional police dog and loved his tracking.

“He refused to give up right to the end.

“Kadar had a handful of apprehensions to his name and he successfully assisted officers in locating many offenders during his years of service.

“His sudden passing is devastating and he will be greatly missed.”

A Queensland Police Service statements said “PD Kadar, with honour you served and it was our honour to serve with you.

“You will never be forgotten.”
