Cordele- Jake, the retired Crisp County drug sniffing dog who lost a leg to cancer, is named to the Hall of Fame.

The 12 year old Golden Retriever, was named the Professional Animal of the year in the 2003 class of the Georgia Animal Hall of Fame.

Jake started with the Crisp County Sheriff's office in 1992. In May, 2002 he lost a leg to cancer, and had to retire.

He still lives with Sheriff's Captain Denise Youngblood and stays active. "I can't leave in that work truck without him," said Youngblood. "He stands at the kennel doors and cries if I start to that truck without him. So he still comes to work everyday. "

Jake is very happy in his retirement, and doing fine after his recovery from cancer. And now an honored member of the Animal Hall of Fame.
