The heartbreaking photo of a police dog entering an animal hospital where he was put down after two years of service to a small town's police department has gone viral.

"RIP my boy. I could not have asked for a better partner or friend. May you rest easy and wait for me at that sacred bridge," the dog's main handler, Officer Jamie Lebretton, wrote in a Facebook post on the Plymouth Police Working Dog Foundation's page.
Kaiser was donated to the department by a local family in 2011, and was only 5 months old at the time.
