A Belgian Malinois-German Shepherd cross, Raven has worked with the NMSUPD for three years, and she inspected buildings and venues across campus including Aggie Memorial Stadium and Pan American Center. She also has been a regional asset and assisted with bomb threats in Dona Ana County.
With Raven’s retirement, NMSUPD has another K-9 in training, Roxy, a Belgian Malanois. Roxy is a one-year old and expected to be working in three to six months. Raven is retiring due to medical reasons and will be adopted by her handler, Sgt. Craig Ryan
“It’s bittersweet that Raven’s retiring,” said Ryan. “I’m going to miss our working relationship, but the fact that I get to adopt her and let her be a pet is very exciting for both of us.”
Jacob Ballard from the Dona Ana County Sheriff’s Department donated Raven to NMSU.
