    Sabre's death Thursday April 21, 2011 came five days after the Galloway Township Police Department held a retirement ceremony for the German shepherd.

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

    Sabre's death 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 at locating suspects and during drug investigations.
