      FAIRBURY, Neb. (AP) — Authorities in Jefferson County say a veteran K-9 has died.

      Jefferson County Sheriff Nels Sorensen says the German Shepherd named Ringo died Wednesday morning following an unspecified medical condition.

      Ringo joined the sheriff's office in 2007, before a stint at the Fairbury Police Department in 2009 and 2010. The dog returned to the sheriff's office in 2011.

      Sorensen says Ringo was a great asset to Jefferson County.
