    Updated:

    FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office says a working K-9 deputy had to be euthanized suddenly after vets discovered he had inoperable cancer.
     
    The Sheriff’s Office said Marco Henry was a 6-year-old Belgian Malinois who worked as a highly-trained all patrol officer up until early this week.
     
    “Marco had not exhibited any signs of being ill prior to Wednesday morning.  He gave 110% everyday on the job and was a loved member of Sgt. (Corey) Henry’s family with whom he lived,” the Sheriff’s Office said.
     
    Marco was the agency’s only all patrol K-9 deputy. The other K-9s in the department were trained for explosives ordinance disposal.
     
    The Sheriff’s Office posted a gallery of Marco at work on its Facebook page.
