Officer Jon Reed’s new partner is not even 3 years old, is in violation of the department’s facial hair policy and has a proclivity for chewing. If that’s not bad enough, he drinks and eats from a bowl.
Max, a 2-and-a-half-year-old Belgian Malinois, is the Sedona Police Department’s newest K-9 officer. He follows in the pawprints of Dalan and Joker, who both served for many years. He and Reed, a four-year veteran of the SPD, entered the K-9 academy in late October 2017 in Tucson and are now patrolling Sedona together.
