The Courier is saddened to learn of the death of Beverly Hills Police Department K-9 Ecko, who was put to sleep last week after a short battle with cancer. Ecko was partners with BHPD officer David Rudy for seven-and-a-half years. They began partnering together when Ecko was just 18-months-old. He retired from the BHPD on April 1, at the age of 9. Ecko was a male Belgian malinois, which are a breed routinely used as police canines because of their high play drive and the unbreakable bond they form with their human partners. Ecko and Officer Rudy’s relationship began during a three-month basic training canine school, which focused on patrol work as well as explosives detection work. During his career, Ecko assisted the BHPD and other outside agencies in explosives detection sweeps and other operations. “We are greatful for all the years Ecko worked at BHPD and will miss him,” BHPD Chief Sandra Spagnoli said.
