A Pearl police dog was struck and killed by a car near his handler's home this week.

The dog, Carris, was a 9-year-old Belgian Melinois.

He was playing outside the officer's house on Highway 481 in Scott County when the accident happened Monday evening.

This is the second Pearl police dog to get hit and killed by a car since March of 2014.

Just four weeks ago, another Pearl police dog escaped his yard and bit a young boy in Madison County.
