ADAMS COUNTY, Miss.- The Adam’s county Board of Supervisor’s voted to allow K-9 agent Scout Mayfield retire and live with Metro Agent and ACSO Deputy Lt. Tom Borum.
The golden retriever began working in 2010 at the age of 2 ½ with the Adams County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit. He and his handler helped Metro agents search vehicles, buildings, and property for narcotics. He was involved in daily training during his time with the department.
He also focused his time on search and rescue. Due to his friendly and open demeanor he was used as an educational tool with children and adults in the community. He served more than the average working drug dog, which is five years.
“Scout has been a tremendous asset to our Sheriff’s Office and to Metro Narcotics,” said Sheriff Mayfield, “He was always professional both in the field and when making personal appearances. And he is blessed to have Lt. Borum, who is also a veterinarian, to care for him. We will miss him and we wish him all the best in his retirement.”
