Roseville K-9 partially paralyzed by criminal has died
ROSEVILLE, Minn. - The Roseville police dog partially paralyzed by a criminal has died at age 11.
Officer John Jorgensen says his K-9 partner, Major, was euthanized this week at the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center after contracting a bladder infection and pneumonia.
Jorgensen says Major, a German shepherd, had an active law enforcement career. He had pots broken over his head, was punched and kicked by suspects and nearly drowned chasing a man into a lake.
