Ultimate recognition for a police dog that was critically injured in the line of duty. This dog saved his partners life, unfortunately at the cost of losing use of his hind legs. Please help in recognizing this brave police dog’s efforts by leaving a thank you comment to Major below.
Major the police dog and his handler have another award to add to their growing collection.
Major was presented a Medal of Valor from the Minneapolis Canine Unit last night.
The Roseville K-9 was stabbed during a burglary back in November and lost the use of his hind legs.
Since then, officer John Jorgensen has helped get a law passed to increase the penalty for people who injure police dogs.
The award ceremony was part of the United States Police Canine Association’s police dog trials. The Minneapolis Police Department has 12 dog-teams competing.
