Russian police have handed over a puppy to the French ambassador in Moscow to replace a French police dog killed in a raid.

The new police dog, Dobrynya, is replacing the fallen seven-year-old Belgian shepherd, Diesel.

The K-9 died during an apartment raid of the alleged mastermind behind the Paris attacks, Abdelhamid Abaaoud, in November, ABC affiliate WABC reported.

The Embassy tweeted photos and video of the the event, where French Ambassador Jean-Maurice Ripert said, the puppy is a “living symbol of the strong ties of friendship and cooperation” between France and Russia. The newest member of the French police force is named after Dobrynya Nikitich, a heroic knight from Russian folk legend.
