K9 Danny will return to work

Danny, the RCMP police dog whose partner was killed in last week's shooting rampage in New Brunswick, will eventually be teamed up with another handler.

The Mounties say once a new partner is chosen, Danny will spend time bonding with that officer before returning to his alma mater, the RCMP Police Dog Service Training Centre in Innisfall, Alta., for a three-week test.

The RCMP say they've received many inquiries from the media and members of the public about Danny's future following the death of Const. Dave Ross.

Ross and his two colleagues, constables Fabrice Gevaudan and Douglas Larche, were shot dead in north-end Moncton on June 4.

A Canadian Press photo of Danny standing on his hind legs and sniffing Ross's Stetson during Tuesday's funeral procession has been shared on Twitter dozens of times.

The RCMP say Danny and Ross were on the job together for less than a year before the shootings.
