The career of one of the most successful members of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department has come to an end.
Jade, a German Shepherd who has been a narcotics detection K9 deputy with the department for more than eight years, retired Monday.
The retirement will be an adjustment not only for Jade, but also for her handler Sgt. Jake Watson. Watson chose Jade as the department’s K9 in March 2003 and she has lived with the Watson family ever since.
