Officers and the public in southern New Jersey are mourning a police dog that battled cancer.

Sabre's death of Thursday came five days after the Galloway Township Police Department held a retirement ceremony for the German shepherd.

His partner, Officer Kevin Welsh, says the 7-and-a-half-year-old joined the department in 2005.

Welsh says the canine excelled locating suspects and during drug investigations.
