ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — A retired Rockford K9 officer died unexpectedly this week.

During that time, Iso assisted with several bomb threats, and helped protect then Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Colin Powell during their visits to Illinois.
Iso was just 7-years-old. The cause of death has not been released.
