PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland K-9 that was killed in the line of duty is being remembered.

Local artist Richard Moore is putting the finishing touches on a sculpture of Mick.

Moore wanted to do something special to remember the dog.

Last year K-9 Mick died of a gunshot wound after trying to take down a burglary suspect.

Moore used pictures of Mick and other police dogs to create the sculpture out of oil and clay.

Once completed, Moore will give the sculpture to Portland Police.
