Heartbreaking Photo of Police Officers Offering Final Salute to K-9 Hero

main image

Kaiser, a K-9 crimefighter from a Plymouth, Massechusets police force was given a respectful salute by a dozen fellow officers as he made his final journey to a vet's office to be put to sleep after an unsuccessful battle with kidney disease.

Kaiser had been accepted as a K-9 police dog when he was 5 months old. He only served two years, but his skills as a police dog were legendary. He fought his debilitating kidney disease with the same courage and tenacity.

It was a heartbreaking decision for his handler, Officer Jamie LeBretton, to have him put down. He wrote a heartfelt eulogy to his K-9 partner on Facebook:

"RIP my boy. I could not have asked for a better partner or friend ... You made me a better person, a better handler, and a better cop. Till we meet again kai. I love you and will miss you daily."

Kaiser was burried at the Angel View Pet Cemetery in Middleboro, Mass.
