PORTLAND -- Residents of the Southwest Portland neighborhood where an officer was shot and a K-9 killed paid tribute to the fallen dog. 

Neighbors posted signs and placed flowers around the area, and neighbors gave injured officer Jeff Dorn a large thank-you card. 

They were also thanking all of the officers who put their lives on the line everyday. 

Officers from Dorn's K-9 unit said the group was grateful for the outpouring of support, and officer Dorn was especially touched. 

"I had a guy today holding a sign asking for money on the on ramp wave me down and say he was sorry [about the loss]. So that's the kind of the support we're getting from there all the way up," said Portland Police Officer Shawn Gore.
