Rayco is a male Belgian Malinois that served the US military deployed to Afghanistan before he came to work with me at the US Capitol Police as an explosive detection K9. I became his handler in May 2017.

Rayco had an amazing work ethic and would search all the seams of a vehicle with no presentations making my job incredibly easy. He was later diagnosed with renal failure and the veterinary staff at Ft Belvoir gave him great care.

He was retired from active duty in August 2019 and all his medical care and benefits through Ft Belvoir and the government ceased. Paws of Honor is taking care of Rayco’s medical care now that he’s retired and he’s is enjoying his retirement in good health.

He enjoys going on long hikes with our other dogs and loves to swim. He looks forward to his daily dental treat. You might even recognize Rayco from his Fox 5 news appearance in August where he met TV celebrities Cori Coffin and Gary McGrady.
