Ando was one bad*$$ K9. His handler was (and still is) a [email protected]$$ too. I've been around working K9's as a trainer and handler since 1993 and Ando is still in the top 3-4 dogs I've ever seen and/or had the experience to work with. He was even the namesake for one of my personal dogs, also one of the best dogs I've ever been around. Rest in Peace, Ando; you're in some great company.

No rank, no name; silent professional.
