Are these magnificent creatures now with the Lord Himself in the Heavenly Realm? Pastor and Author Randy Alcorn at certainly feels this is factual, and even devoted 2 chapters of his best selling “Heaven” book to establish his case. Many of his inspiring articles are at: We can also get a glimpse of the Glorious Reunions awaiting their devoted Handlers, Trainers and Owners at May the Good Lord comfort these intelligent and brave animals and their human family and caring departments accordingly…

"To Protect And Serve" is just what you did. If an officer had made that approach he could well have been shot and even killed. Your love for your handler and for your job cost you your life, but you died in the line of duty doing what you had been trained to do; disable a murderer before he could kill again.

RIP dear Bandit , thank you so grateley for your special service which you have payed with your dear life.

It is once again a sad day in which a K9 lost his life.

Something standing out is that Bandit was seems to have been killed by the same people supposed to protect him.

You Mr Sheriff needs to ensure your K9 handler's are propper trained to deal with these incidents. A bad boeboe I believe.

Bandit you are now safely in God's hands where you will be safe forever.

Thank you so much for your service.
