Police dog, Argo, dies of cancer
The Knoxville Police Department has announced the loss of a loyal police dog to cancer. Argo, an 8 1/2-year-old German shepherd, was euthanized Saturday due to a rapid decline in his condition. The police dog was diagnosed six weeks ago and was expected to live only a short time, according to KPD spokesman Darrell DeBusk. Argo had served the department since 2008.
