WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — An ailing police dog has been put down after seven years of service in New Castle County.
The News Journal of Wilmington reports that the 10-year-old German shepherd named Monty had notched over 80 apprehensions and helped seize roughly $675,000 during his time aiding law enforcement.
The newspaper says Monty had lived with police Cpl. Steven Donahue for over a decade.
The dog was retired from the K-9 unit in 2016.
