WOODSTOCK, Ga. — A police dog handler was suspended and reassigned to traffic duty after his canine partner died while left in the officer’s patrol car.
Chad Berry, a police officer for the city of Woodstock north of Atlanta, had been a police canine handler for seven years before he found Spartacus, a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois, dead in the car outside his home, Woodstock police Sgt. Randy Millgan said Friday. He said Berry contacted Woodstock police and the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office. A necropsy concluded heat stroke was the probable cause of death.
