Today we pay respect to Jethro, the K9 from Canton, Ohio that passed away over the weekend after being shot three times by an armed robber. His heroic efforts saved the lives of several officers.
Jethro was immediately taken to a veterinary emergency clinic after being shot where he lay in critical condition. His partner, Officer Ryan Davis, was by his side as he took his last breath. The traumatic brain injury was just too much for Jethro, but his heroic efforts will be remembered forever.
