An investigation is underway into whether the death of a police dog was connected to threats to kill its handler. The German shepherd dog was found dead on Monday morning at the handler’s home.
A force spokesperson said: “Northumbria Police take very seriously threats made against our own staff in the course of their duties and this remains the priority of the investigation. They are carrying out inquiries to find out if the death of the dog is connected to this investigation.
