K9 Officer Max rushes in with puplike enthusiasm, sniffing and wagging his tail. Then, at a word from his partner, Deputy G. W. Kilmer, Max is all business. He sits as still as a statue, his eyes fixed on Kilmer, awaiting instructions.
Kilmer and Max are one of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department’s four K9 teams. The others are Deputies Allan Thomas and Kit, Brandon Conway and Nitro, and Dustin Tabler and Vite.
