Hondo! A true Hero you were! I am so sorry you lost your life in this way. I can only imagine the heartbreak your Handler felt and I grieve with him/her. I know you and that offender are in very different places! Rest in Peace, beautiful boy.

So hard to even begin to write. Hondo thank you for your courage, bravery, loyalty and fight. To fearlessly go after bad people without even thinking of yourself. I'm sure your partner is missing you terribly. And that feeling doesn't go away very easily. Thank you for giving your life in the cause of protecting us. Hondo, you will never be replaced. Ever.

Dogs like this make me like animals better than humans sometimes.
They are so devoted to humans. I have no doubt my dogs would defend me.

DAVID, thankful citizen and dog lover.

Don’t grieve for me I served you well.
I loved you more than you could ever tell.
I am now an angel in blue.
I laid my life on the line for you.
I wore my badge with honor every day,
to keep citizens safe and out of harms way.
so when you see a badge worn with pride,
remember their comrades and friends that have died

It makes me sad that a dog has been shot and killed by a suspect. Those who wear the badge are also four legged animals. Rest easy Hondo.
