We all remember Jethro, the beautiful K9 service dog that was gunned down when he and his officer responded to a call of a robbery in progress. The shooter managed to get the dog several times as the dog worked to protect his officer. Though he was not shot anywhere that was major or even considered deadly at first, he succumbed to his injuries regardless and lost his life the same day. It was such an emotional moment for his family and his officers. This is a dog that has been with the Davis family for many years. He goes to work every single day with Officer Davis and they worked together for so long to keep the streets of their little community safe. Now he is gone all because some horrible person couldn’t handle what he was doing without panicking.
Jethro has been gone for a while now, and his family has even been given a new service dog. However, Jethro is not a dog that they can or will easily forget. He is a dog that they love endlessly, and he was recently honored with an award that is given to the most heroic fallen service dogs. Jethro’s community and family were all there to see the award given, and his family came up on the stage to accept it on his behalf. We have a video of the entire thing below for those who want to see this lovely dog honored in the most amazing way for his selfless work.
