Max II

K9 Max II died after inhaling the poison sodium fluoroacetate while conducting a track of a burglary suspect inside of a grocery store at 5020 South State Street.

An exterminator had placed the banned substance inside the store in an effort to kill rodents. The man had previously been convicted of charges of using the illegal poison and was ordered to discontinue its use after K9 Duke died after ingesting it in 1985. He was charged with criminal contempt of court following K9 Max's death.

K9 Max had served with the Chicago Police Department for five years.
