K9 Majlo was born on July 22 2018 and was purchased by the CT Department of Corrections in February 2020. Correctional Officer Steven Gennuso began a 14 week K9 training program at the CT State Police K9 Academy in March of 2020 and graduated June of 2020. Both K9 Majlo and Officer Gennuso began their patrol work within the CT prisons making their presence known. In March of 2021 K9 Majlo and Officer Gennuso began a 6 week training in Narcotics Detection at CT State Police K9 Academy.

Sadly throughout this time Majlo fought against a bacterial disease known as Clostridium Perfringes which caused many stomach issues. Although we were able to help those issues with a raw diet, Majlo by this time became mentally different and was unable to perform well on the job. Although Majlos retirement came way too soon he was able to make a difference those 2 short years on patrol and in narcotics searches. Majlo looks forward to his retirement and spending time with family and friends!
