Two Luke K-9s retire after honorable service
Maj. Kimberly Guest, left, 56th Security Forces Squadron commander, and Tech. Sgt. Zackery Hons, 56th SFS military working dog handler, honor Rango, 56th SFS MWD, as he retires March 19, 2021 at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona. Rango, an 8-year old Czech German Shepherd, leaves behind the legacy of taking first place at the 2019 Desert Dog Trials for narcotic detection, beating 70 other K-9 teams, and will retire into the care of his former handler. As the Air Force prepares to retire a MWD, the dog’s handler can request to adopt the dog enabling it to live the remainder of its life as a family member. Boss and Rango will retire and live at home with their respective handler. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Amber Carter)
