JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska — Members of the 673d Security Forces Squadron render a final salute to retired military working dog Dino as he is escorted by his former handler and current owner, Tech Sgt. Scott Brakefield, during his final walk at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, Oct. 17, 2019. Dino, a Belgian Malinois, was born in June of 2005 and was stationed at JBER in June of 2007 where he served as a patrol and narcotics detector dog until his retirement in November of 2015. Brakefield, a native of Willoughby, Ohio, adopted Dino after working together for two years. During his service at JBER, Shemya island and the Alaska/Canadian border, Dino was credited with 61 narcotic finds. Due to his declining health and quality of life, military veterinarians decided to euthanize Dino.
