Memorial service held for Border Patrol dog killed in line of duty in El Paso

Posted on KVIA January 15, 2020

Bulder, a Border Patrol canine agent shot dead during shootout in northeast El Paso.

EL PASO, Texas -- A memorial service was held Wednesday for Bulder, the 5-year-old Belgian Malinois U.S. Border Patrol canine, who was killed during a shootout in northeast El Paso in December.

Bulder was with agents while they were attempting to execute a search and arrest warrant to a 62-year-old man who was charged with illegal possession and manufacturing of firearms.

During the execution of the warrants, the man was confronted in the backyard of his home in the 4500 block of Capricorn Drive. He shot and killed Bulder. The man was later shot and killed during an exchange of gunfire.

The memorial service took place at the Abundant Living Faith Center on the city's west side.

Please accept our sincere condolences on the passing of K9 Bulder. He is a true hero protecting the citizens of this great country with his life. He did so for little more than a kind word and a round of play. May his memory live on in the hearts of his handler, department and all of the American Citizens he so selflessly served.

Heavenly Father, You are always faithful and quick to show mercy. Our Partner-in-Blue, K9 Bulder, of the United States Border Patrol, was taken from us on Tuesday, December 17, 2019. He was shot and killed in the Line-of-Duty while performing an apprehension during a warrant service in El Paso, Texas. Come swiftly to his aid, have mercy on him, and comfort his family, friends, and colleagues by the power and protection of the cross. We ask this through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ; for He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can go to the Father except by way of the Son. Now, cross over the ‘Rainbow Bridge’ and jump into the loving arms of the Lord Jesus Christ where you will remain forever more. Amen.

“Blessed are those who mourn. They will be comforted.” [Matthew 5:4 GW]

Bulder sacrificed his life to protect his BORTAC teammates during an arrest warrant service. Although that is what he was trained to do, the loss of any agent is as equally painful. Bulder, and his handler, are true heroes. RIP, Bulder. We will miss you. Vaya con Dios!
