AMARILLO, Texas -

Amarillo police are investigating a Facebook video that appeared to show an officer kicking his K9, according to KVII News in Amarillo. 

Amarillo police report early Tuesday morning an officer deployed his K9 to assist patrol officers in apprehending a suspect who had stolen a vehicle.

The Amarillo Police Department has removed the K9 from the officer's home and is being kenneled with the K9 Unit supervisor while the investigation is ongoing. 

The dog does not appear to have any injuries, but the department says he is scheduled to be checked by a veterinarian to be sure. Amarillo police report the officer will continue to work, but without his K9.
