It’s been a year and half since K-9 police dog Dux was shot by two bullets while apprehending a suspect in Spotsylvania County; suffering a large wound in his back and another in his neck Oct. 2, 2016. Although wounded, with bullet fragments lodged within a centimeter of his spine, he still went on... During a traffic stop; the suspect Joseph Elliott Conway of King George, became violent, resisted arrest, punched the deputy and ran off. Officer Kelley and another deputy pursued the man and Dux was let go to chase down the suspect, but was shot when the dog got about 10 feet of the suspect. The brave German shepherd survived the encounter and went back to duty, teaming back up with his handler, Deputy Kory Kelley. Both Deputy Kelley and Dux are to be honored for their brave service and actions as the pair was chosen, from among many other brave candidates, to have a statue created of them and displayed in the National Law Enforcement Museum, which is under construction in Washington, D.C.; where the statues will be on display when the museum opens in the fall. Conway was arrested and convicted of 11 charges, and is to serve 45 1/2 years in prison; where he belongs!
