The group presented the vest to Thunder and his handler, Deputy Jerry Darst, on Sunday at the 4-H Trunk or Treat at the Gallia County Junior Fairgrounds. The group has outfitted currently three such animals in the county and are $300 away from the next county canine officer with protective wear. Thunder was born Nov. 17, 2014.
