Heartbreaking Photo Shows Police Officer Saying Goodbye to K-9 Partner
MIDDLETOWN, Conn. -- Heartbreaking pictures show a Connecticut police officer saying goodbye to his sick K-9 partner. Middletown police posted the photos to the department's Facebook page on Friday after Officer Michael D'Aresta made the "toughest decision any K-9 handler dreads making." According to police, K-9 Hunter had been sick for several days. When tests showed that Hunter had an aggressive form of liver cancer, the recommendation was made that Hunter be euthanized.
