Cpl. Coleman rushed Mason to a local veterinarian’s office, where he was then transported to a facility in Pensacola for extensive treatment. However Mason went into respiratory failure Friday night and passed away.
Because Mason was a community relations dog and not an enforcement dog with the Gulf Shores Police Department, Corporal Coleman’s vehicle didn’t carry equipment to relieve a dog from prolonged heat exposure.
