Handler: Officer Kevin Welsh Galloway Twp. Police Department

...
"I knew it wasn't going to be much longer after that," Welsh, a Galloway Township K-9 officer, said.
...
"I knew it wasn't going to be much longer after that," Welsh, a Galloway Township K-9 officer, said. The night was April 20 of this year. The following day, Sabre was dead. On Thursday night, his best friend and partner of six and a half years took his ashes to his favorite spot. Under an ominous sky, with friends looking on and dogs barking in the background, Welsh took his best friend's remains and scattered them into the water. Sabre was free. "When I got Sabre, I needed a place to take him to run," Welsh said of Dog Beach.
...
For six and a half years, Welsh brought Sabre to that spot to play and to commiserate with the other dogs. Sabre loved the other dogs, and the other dogs loved Sabre. Then again, there weren't too many people who didn't love the police dog named after Sabre on the old "American Gladiators" TV show, which originally aired in the mid 1990's. "Everyone knew he was caring and compassionate," Welsh said.
...
The children of Pomona Elementary School knew "Sabre" particularly well, as Welsh was the C.O.P.S. 5 officer for the school. C.O.P.S. 5 is Galloway's drug- awareness program. Welsh said he knew from the time he was 12 years old he wanted to be a K-9 officer. "A family friend was a K-9 officer," Welsh said. "He was actually a captain in Galloway. I saw him and he would tell stories and I thought it was just an awesome job. Welsh first became a police officer in Beach Haven in 2000, and he transferred to his hometown police department in Galloway two years later. However, it wasn't until 2005, a full five years after becoming a cop for the first time, that Welsh had the opportunity to become a K-9 officer, and he has been ever since. Welsh's new partner is named Titan, also after an athlete on American Gladiators. Sabre' name was originally to be Titan, but after Welsh knew his partner for one day, he changed it to Sabre because it just seemed like that's what his name should be. Sabre must've felt that way, too. For over half a decade, the faithful Sabre was always by his companion's side, and he never let him down. He had a long career of narcotics detection, making his final mission with the police department seem a little more fitting. "It was in January, and a suspicious package was coming through the area," Welsh said. "Sabre searched a bunch of packages, and he found crystal methamphetamine." Sabre became sick shortly thereafter. He had to be neutered, and he didn't work while recuperating from the surgery. While recovering, it was discovered that he had cancer. "This was one of the hardest things I've had to go through," Welsh said. "I don't think I had the bond with my grandparents that I had with Sabre." Training with Titan has helped Welsh cope with the loss of Sabre, but Welsh noted Titan has "big paws to fill." A star in the Ursa Major constellation has been named after Sabre, and two poems were read in his memory at Thursday night's memorial. A plaque was also presented to Welsh, and John Mistler was on hand to play the bagpipes while Welsh scattered Sabre's ashes into the water off Dog Beach.

Officers and the public in southern New Jersey are mourning a police dog that battled cancer. Sabre's death of Thursday came five days after the Galloway Township Police Department held a retirement ceremony for the German shepherd. His partner, Officer Kevin Welsh, says the 7-and-a-half-year-old joined the department in 2005. Welsh says the canine excelled locating suspects and during drug investigations.
