JEFFERSON COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Jefferson County students honored the deputy who saved an abused dog last month.
Many remember the dog as Jimmy, but his real name was Flick.
Flick was found by the Jefferson County Deputy in a ditch during cold temperatures in February. The deputy rushed Flick to the vet when he found him, and Flick’s story quickly became a hit.
On Thursday, Seckman Middle School students held a school-wide assembly to honor the Deputy, Keith Smith.
Deputy Smith received a plaque from the school’s animal club which called him an “animal hero.”
