July 3, 2012 - PRLog -- On June 4, 2012, K9 Kenzo selflessly placed himself  in  harm’s  way  while  tracking  an armed murder suspect.  K9 Kenzo located the suspect hiding and ready to ambush deputies. K9 Kenzo drew the suspect’s attention away from approaching deputies resulting in him being shot twice by the suspect before depu- ties could return fire, killing the suspect.

K9  Kenzo  is  recovering  from  two  gunshot wounds  and  is  expected  to  return  to  work soon. During the ambush a Sheriff ’s Office Lieutenant sustained a gunshot wound to the left leg. He is currently recovering.

K9 Kenzo is true hero and is recovering well.

After  hearing  about  the  deputy  involved  and  K-9  shoot- ing on June 4, 2012, the president of Hulett Pest Control, Tim  Hulett,  contacted  the  Palm  Beach  County  Sheriff ’s Foundation requesting to donate a brand new vest to K-9
Kenzo when he returns to active duty.

Thank you, Mr. Hulett, for your generosity. Your donation
is greatly appreciated.
