Heroic police dog Bosun dies in handler's arms

RETIRED PD Bosun, the police dog who never shied away from his job, has sadly passed away aged nine years old.

His handler, Senior Constable Wayne Algie, held his good mate and work colleague Bosun in his arms as he took his last breaths on Monday.

Former PD Bosun had a very distinquished career with the Queensland Police Service becoming well known for his part in the capture of an offender involved in the shooting of Detective Senior Constable Damian Leeding.

Senior Constable Algie said Bosun was one of a kind and he lived life to the fullest while having such a great work ethic.

"Bosun was much loved by his family at home as well as his QPS family," Senior Constable Algie said.

Rest in peace Bosun.
