A Massachusetts police dog got a official send off as over a dozen officers saluted the hound on his way to be put down.

Kaiser, a two and a half year old German Shepard, was a member of the Plymouth, Massachusetts police department.

The dog was laid to rest after a brief battle with kidney disease by handler Ptl. Jamie Lebretton, who led the K-9 through a gauntlet of officers paying tribute to the crime fighting canine.

In a heart-breaking Facebook post on the Plymouth Police Working Dog Foundation's page Officer Lebretton wrote, 'It is with deep regret and sorrow that I announce the retirement of my partner K-9 Kaiser. Kaiser was recently diagnosed with severe kidney disease/failure … [He] battled this disease with vigor and toughness like I have never seen before.'

 

And here's a sad Kaiser being given his send-off. 

Dogs, man. Nothing else can affect a person like a dog. RIP, Kaiser.
