>> reporter: the san francisco police department issued this press release saying the shepherd had to be put to sleep. the dog served the darrel for the past seven years. he lived with his handler, officer matt, and his family. here he is. abc7 news spoke with the current and former canine handlers, both from sfpd and other law enforcement bagss the order to euthanize the dog. both said they were angry about the decision even though most agreed that deputy chief in charge probably followed the letter of the law, he violated its spirit. here's what happened last thursday. the officer noticed he was acting strangely after a full day of strange on wednesday. he took his canine to the nor cal veterinarian hospital in daly city. the veterinarian said he was bleeding internally. possibly with a ruptured tumor. that the dog needed exploratory
4:15 pm
surgery to determine if he had cancer. a procedure that could cost up to $8,000. the other choice would be to put him down. either way, the decision had to be made quickly. the officer reported the findings to his superiors. according to our sources, he asked them to retire the dog to him. he said no. that the process could take too long and the medical costs too great. he ordered the dog euthanized. the dog was put to sleep later that afternoon. canine officers we spoke with say a memorial fund established in memory of a canine office here died during a training exercise could have paid for the surgery and other medical costs. it is administered by the spca and is funded to the tune of $1 million and was set up specifically to care for retired police canines. now, sfpd released a second statement following our
