SUBLETTE COUNTY, WYO – The Sublette County Sheriff’s Office regrets to announce the passing of retired K9 “Max.”

Max began his career with the SCSO in May of 2009. Along with his partner, Deputy Dan Ruby, Max worked for approximately five and a half years seizing multiple types of drugs coming into the county.

K9 Max retired from duty in November 2014. Afterward he became a permanent member of the Ruby family. Deputy Ruby described Max as a small lapdog trapped in a big dog’s body.

“He was always happiest near me,” Ruby said. “Max loved to work and play with his toys or anything that would squeak.”

The Sublette County Sheriff’s Office is honored to have had K9 Max serving our community and we thank him and Dan for their faithful years of service.

Our deepest condolences to Deputy Ruby and his family. Max will not be forgotten.
