It was a heartbreaking scene outside of the Whiting Veterinary Clinic last Friday, as a retired K9, "Bullet", took his final steps, surrounded by fellow K9 heroes and officers.

The 10-year-old Belgian Malinois was undergoing severe health problems that brought him to the end of his life.

Bullet served the Barnegat community for 8 years, playing an integral role in countless investigations. The Barnegat Police Department remembered their friend and colleague in a tribute on their Facebook page.
