It is with sadness we announce the sudden passing of police dog and TV star PD Edge overnight. ( Saturday 4 April 2015 )
PD Edge, who starred in Channel Nine’s factual program Send in The Dogs in 2011, served as a general police dog with the Brisbane Dog Squad alongside Senior Constable Stuart Ellison.
His exceptional skills were demonstrated on many occasions throughout his five years of service with the QPS, often assisting tactical police, drug squad and SERT.
The seven-year-old German Sheppard was responsible for tracking a large number of offenders and became well-known amongst other officers for his ability and skill, especially on Brisbane’s Southside.
Overnight, while off-duty and enjoying rest over the Easter break, PD Edge was unwell and rushed to hospital where he underwent surgery but could not be saved.
Police dogs and their handlers form an incredible bond, working and living together.
Our thoughts are with Senior Constable Ellison and his family who are obviously devastated with the loss of PD Edge.
