ST. GEORGE — Two Southern Utah K-9 officers-in-training, Tank and Vinnie, will be making a rare appearance Saturday evening at the Megaplex Theatre Pineview Stadium 10 in St. George, and will be available for a meet-and-greet at the “Max” movie premiere.

Tank, who was made famous when his photo went viral on social media, garnering over 1 million “likes” on Facebook and earning him a stab- and bulletproof vest from Tread Armament and Weaponry, is in training to become Washington City’s next police dog.

Vinnie, the next Patrol K-9 for the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, is a black German Shepherd, who will be donated to the Sheriff’s Office by Havoc K9 in June.

Both dogs are scheduled to arrive between 5-5:30 p.m., and will be available for pictures and a meet-and-greet until 8:45 p.m. in the movie theater lobby.
