RIP to the French police dog killed in the latest big raid in France of ISIS scum. Thoughts to all who worked with that pup as I'm sure that is a tough one. They are such honorable warriors. Hats off.
From another source:
Rest in Peace, Diesel.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of this valiant K9. This is a stark reminder of the dangers that all our men, women, and K-9's that serve overseas and here at home face on a daily basis to protect our freedoms.
Diesel, she is a 7 year-old police K-9 with the French anti-terrorist unit known as RAID. Sadly she was killed in an early morning operation in Saint-Denis.

My thoughts go out to her handler.
A hero until the end!
My deepest sympathy for the loss of Diesel. I believe that her Handler is absolutely grief stricken! I know people that lost their K9 in the line of duty and it is devastating to them and all of us around them. Godspeed Diesel!
No idea if that is for real but the French have plenty of sources for dogs and I believe have shown a preference for the Malinois. Cute Russian dog but one can't say "perfect" quite yet. I'm guessing either the RAID has their own breeding program or they use brokers to get green dogs out of programs like KNPV. Just saying...
