Police dog gets new posting after partner slain
By The Canadian Press
INNISFAIL, Alta. - A police dog whose partner was one of the Mounties shot and killed in New Brunswick in June is going back to work.
Danny the German shepherd has been spending time at the RCMP Police Dog Service Training centre in the central Alberta community of Innisfail (IHN'-ihs-FAYL)
Danny's handler, Const. David Ross, was one of three officers killed in Moncton on June 4 by a man who has since pleaded guilty.
An RCMP spokesman says Danny has been at the training centre in Alberta on and off this summer re-training and bonding with a new handler.
The pair is expected to return to policing "in the near future."
The RCMP is not sharing any information about Danny's new post or partner.
