A police dog who served under the K-9 unit of the PNP Regional Public Safety Batallion (RPSB) 13 was given burial honors as tribute for her service to the police force.

Members of the RPSB 13 held a funeral in honor of their fallen comrade, "Geraldine", a German Shepherd who died due to tetanus and tick-borne diseases.

PO2 Nino Bianan, Geraldine's handler, spoke highly of his partner, saying she was instrumental in some of their key operations and was exceptional in finding explosives.

The dog's body was wrapped with a Philippine flag before she was laid to rest inside the compound of RPSB 13 in Butuan. -- Report from Richmond Hinayon, ABS-CBN News
