MS. SUE PLEASE HELP!!!

Where should the comma go in the following sentence?

Throughout the novel, Steinbeck has foreshadowed the novel's ending by giving some details about Candy's old dog which Carlson shot since it was getting too old and useless.

Should it go after the word "dog" or after the word "shot?"
(or is there no need for a comma?)

Please Help!!
Thanks!!

    I'm sorry, but I'm rusty on commas in restrictive and non restrictive clauses. I'm sure another English teacher will be able to help you.

    Yes, put a comma after "dog" in that sentence.
