A Hinesville police dog has been put down following an accident and illness. 

Hinesville Police Department K-9 officer Brad was euthanized Saturday after he broke his leg and may have had cancer. Brad was the first Hinesville police K-9 used to track down suspects. The most recent was the suspect involved in a soldier shooting in June. 

Brad was also in a K-9 cruiser when a drunk driver ran his handler off the road and crashed into another vehicle killing that driver in January 2012.
