The Art of James Mellick: Deputy Dog Alex
Deputy Dog Alex was commissioned by a donor for the Delaware County (Ohio) Sheriff's office. The sculpture is modeled after the K9 deputy dog Alex but honors all the dogs and handlers that serve in the K9 unit.
Alex's four canine teeth are capped with titanium but polished aluminum was used for his likeness.
Actual sheriff's badge was used in the design.
