K9 Max died following complications during surgery for a duty related injury the previous night.

K9 Max and his handler had responded to a burglary in progress on NW 176th Terrace in which multiple suspects were believed to be inside of a residence. Max's handler deployed him through a jalousie window that appeared to provide access into the home. One of the glass panels in the window came loose and severely lacerated one of Max's ears.

He was transported to Hollywood Animal Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery to repair the damage. During the surgery he suffered a medical emergency and died.

K9 Max had served as a certified apprehension and explosive ordinance detection canine for four years.

This year I'm riding in the Police Unity Tour with the Delaware Chapter. The honor was given to me to ride for K9 Max. Can someone from the agency please contact me in hopes that I can send something in honor of K9 Max to his handler?
Thank you!
