October 3, 2011 started like any other day on the force for Clayton County PD Officers Travis Fox and his partner K9 Lakota.  But it didn’t end up that way.  While responding to a call of a home invasion Officer Fox and Lakota were involved in a horrendous crash.

Travis Fox’s injuries were serious: the vehicle was torn in two and he was thrown through the windshield.  But Lakota’s injuries were far graver.

When the police cruiser tore in two, Lakota’s kennel was ripped open and Lakota was thrown from the vehicle.  He suffered extensive injuries including a broken back, shattered legs and needed numerous surgeries to survive.

But the Fox family didn’t give up on Lakota.  Although Lakota was owned by the Clayton County PD, they had to retire him due to his obvious injuries.  

Travis Fox and his wife Corey immediately stepped up and adopted Lakota incurring the costs of his follow up treatment.  It was never a question of whether Lakota should be treated like “police equipment”, he was a part of their family and they would do anything to help him survive.  Besides, Lakota was Travis’ partner who helped apprehend over 80 suspects, performed 28 drug seizures and $60,000 in cash, and numerous vehicle and property recoveries.

Although Lakota’s chances of surviving were not strong, his will certainly was.  After multiple surgeries and long lasting effects, Lakota is enjoying his retirement while helping be the driving force behind changes and new laws that protect law enforcement K9’s during times of crisis. 

Lakota still needs monthly veterinary visits to cope with the arthritic effects and issues from the accident, but the Fox family feel blessed that both Travis and Lakota were able to survive that fateful day.
