Kid was born January 2, 2007 in Czechoslovakia where he was raised and trained for explosive device detection.
He was a six-year veteran with the Sheriff's Office and began his career as a police service dog, according to the news release.
Kid was considered for military use in Afghanistan, but Homeland Security funds awarded to the Sheriff's Office allowed Kid to join the force in Hamilton County.
Kid and his handler, Deputy Steve Fischesser, trained at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport or with the other canine units.
Kid and Fischesser also worked security at Cincinnati Bengals home games.
Over his six-years of service, Kid responded to 500 requests for service and also participated in demonstrations held at schools throughout Hamilton County, the Sheriff's Office stated.
In a news release, Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil stated that Kid was a hardworking but gentle member of the Sheriff's Office and he will be missed.
