Godspeed K9 Raiden. Our people owe you a debt that can never be repaid. You gave us more in your short years, than we could ever return & certainly you paid with your life. Our 4 legged heroes are an amazing asset to our PDs & SOs and not enough is given to ensure their care in emergencies & in their retirement. Please, contact your State Reps & ask that they pass laws like Neros Law & Dakotas Law, In Massachusetts *(See the film, "Healing Dakota).
My prayers to his handler& the PD who lost this beautiful soul. My heart stands with you everyday.
