On Monday, the Chula Vista Police Department announced the unexpected death of a young K9 who worked for their agency. A news release states that the four-year-old Belgian Malinios, Ranger, died on Saturday, June 25. Ranger was sworn in with the department in November 2020.

The department described Ranger as a “courageous K9” who kept his police partners and the community that he served safe.

Ranger’s handler, Police Agent Gen Murofushi said Ranger loved doing his job:

“He was the happiest dog I ever had, and he absolutely loved me and my family.
My life and my family’s life was blessed to have had him in it. He is and will be missed.”

On Saturday morning, Agent Murofushi was joined by members of the Chula Vista and National City
Police K9 teams in final farewells as Ranger was taken to the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility. An
American flag was draped over him in honor of his service.

Chief Roxana Kennedy said, “Although we will miss him, Ranger will never be forgotten and will always be a part of our Chula Vista Police
Department family.”

No information was provided about Ranger’s cause of death.
