Heroic K-9 moves closer to national award

The K-9 partner of the Berks County sheriff's deputy who died in the line of duty has moved a step closer to receiving a national award.

Jynx, the K-9 who worked with Kyle Pagerly, has advanced to the finals in this year's American Humane Association Hero Dog contest.

Pagerly died during a gunbattle in Albany Township in June 2011.

"Jynx" tried to pull his partner out of harm's way during the shooting.
