GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- "It really is a Christmas Miracle." That's what a Facebook post said about a $12,000 donation to the Green Bay Police Department.

Bark N' Blue, an annual fundraiser held for the Green Bay Police Department K-9 Unit, made the post Thursday.

The Facebook post also said someone from the community donated the money so the police department can replace its K-9 Echo. He died earlier this week.

Within an 18-month span, three of the police department's K-9s have died and two retired.
