FBI dog killed in raid will be memorialized

freddyFreddy, a Belgian Malinois killed in the line of duty in Michigan Wednesday, will have his name added to a memorial wall at FBI headquarters in Quantico, Va., the agency said Thursday.

Freddy was killed by gunfire at a Dearborn warehouse during a raid on members of a group the FBI described as a radical, violent and separatist black Muslim group.

Killed in the raid was Luqman Ameen Adbullah, the imam of the Masjid Al-Haqq mosque in Detroit and the alleged leader of the group, according to the Detroit News.

The FBI said in a news release that Freddy’s body will be returned to Quantico, where the dog was based.

“Freddy was born on Feb. 17, 2007 and entered on duty with the FBI on Sept. 8, 2008,” the FBI said in a statement. “In the line of duty, Freddy gave his life for his team. He will be missed by his FBI family.”

Donations to the K-9 Law Enforcement Memorial can be sent to the FBI Agents Association, Attn: K-9 Fund Freddy, P.O. Box 12650, Arlington, VA 22219.

Sad. Terrible consequences of being a working dog. To memorialize Freddy is only fitting. RIP Good Dog.

We love you, Freddy. There is a really good book of stories similar to this called Paws to Protect: Dogs Saving Lives and Restoring Hope. One dog was on Saddam’s police force. Americans needed a guard dog so local people captured the dog and gave it to them. He loved the Americans and protected them so well they took him home with them!
