The Detective Dog was of a Doberman Pinscher breed, which was born on March 15, 2011 and since then it was with the city police. Six months ago the detective dog has undergone surgery for the removal of cancer growth on the body.
Sudha’s health has deteriorated for the last week and it has breathed its last on Saturday morning. Police officials placed garlands of Sudha’s corpse after honouring the police dog with full state honour. Now, the Mangaluru city police department has two dogs and the other two are getting trained, which will be joining the department in the near future.
