Mumbai, July 23, 2016: Another hero dog has bid goodbye to the soil. This time, it was none other than the sweet-tempered Police dog Tiger who led from the front when Pakistan supported terrorists waged war against India from the commerce capital Mumbai.
Police dog Tiger retired from the police service last year and breathed last on Saturday. Post retirement, Tiger (12), a black labrador was staying at the Fizzah Farms in Virar from May 2015 as he was suffering from lung infection and he was on medication from then on. But his condition worsened this Friday and on Saturday it was time to go, leaving all at the farm heartbroken.
Police dog Tiger is the latest to die and joins sniffer dog Max and police dog Sultan who like Tiger was part of the Goregaon unit of the Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad (BDDS).
It was, therefore, but expected that Police dog Tiger got respectable goodbyes from his handler and other care-taker officers from the Goregaon Unit Bomb Detection police Squad.
Tiger was laid to rest with his favourite coconut ball that became his companion after Sultan, his best pal ,and colleague, was no more.
Wrapped in the colours of India, Police dog Tiger has said goodbye to the nation, hoping that the citizens will keep the nation safe and secure.
