Reports suggest that Diesel, who is trained to sniff out explosives, was blown to pieces when a jihadi bride came out firing her AK-47 at police before detonating her suicide vest.

A tweet by the French national police confirmed the death of the seven-year-old Belgian shepherd dog, from its Research, Assistance, Intervention and Deterrence (Raid) unit.

“Diesel, a seven-year-old Malinois, RAID assault dog, was killed by terrorists in the current operation,” the tweet read.

 Tributes quickly poured in to the respected canine, with one police handler saying: ‘It’s a little like losing one our colleagues.’

Some posted these fabulous words, in honor of the French police dog.

 The hashtag #Jesuisunchien [translated to English as “I’m a dog”] has gone viral since Twitter users heard of the dog’s death. French police said that dogs like Diesel are “indispensable” to the elite unit.  The Belgian Malinois is one of the breeds most commonly used as police dogs, as per the National Police Dog Foundation.

The brave dog was reportedly the first to be sent into an apartment to assess the level of danger before they stormed it.
