PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island dog whose inspiring story of going from shelter dog to life-saving police K-9 became the subject of a recent Netflix movie has been euthanized.
State Police said Sunday K-9 Ruby was put down Friday following a “sudden, acute, and untreatable illness.” She was 11 years old.
The superintendent of the state police expressed gratitude for K-9 Ruby’s years of service.
