Sheriff’s Department Says Goodbye to Maxx the Drug Dog

Sheriff’s Department Says Goodbye to Maxx the Drug Dogdinos02sidelogo3

(Oakland County Sheriff’s Department, July 24, 2014)

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is sad to announce the death of one of its K-9 members, “Maxx”. Maxx was assigned to the Narcotics Enforcement Team and is credited with uncovering large quantities of narcotics during his tenure at the Sheriff’s Office. In January 2014, the Sheriff’s Office acquired Maxx from the United States Customs and Border Protection and immediately, he became an asset to the agency. Maxx was a 5 year old Belgian Malinois and passed away due to natural causes.

“Maxx was a natural at finding and uncovering dangerous narcotics. He conducted many tracks and drug essentialsearches during his time with the Sheriff’s Office.” said Sheriff Bouchard. “He was an exceptional Deputy and his presence will be missed by our agency.”

While the Sheriff’s Office is sad to see one of its own pass away, the K-9 Unit is pleased to announce that there have been two new members added to the team recently. Two Dutch Shepherds named Bak and Morus have recently joined the K-9 Unit and will be deployed when necessary for law enforcement investigations.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit is currently comprised of 14 dogs that are specially trained in bomb detection, arson detection, narcotics, fugitive apprehension, tracking, and property recovery. In 2013, the K-9 Unit responded to 1,938 requests for police service throughout Oakland County.
