HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) -

A funeral service will be held Monday night in Hinesville in honor of a police K-9 who recently lost his life.

The service for Hinesville police K-9 Brad is from 6-8 p.m. at Sanford Carter Funeral Home in Hinesville.

The police dog shattered its leg two weeks ago and had to be put down and may have also been suffering from cancer. Brad's last big case was tracking the suspect involved in a soldier's shooting death in Hinesville last month.

He was also severely injured last year when a drunk driver rammed his handler's police car from behind in Long County. K-9 units throughout the region have been invited to attend the service.
