PARKER COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – There’s a new sheriff in town and he’s only 4-years-old!

Thanks to a non-profit organization, little Chandler Davis had his dream of becoming a cowboy deputy sheriff come true.

Chandler has been diagnosed with a terminal, rare bone marrow cellular disease and a malformation of the brain. The little boy has already endured some 20 medical procedures and tests and now faces a second possible brain surgery.

The non-profit Western Wishes, along with the Parker County Sheriff’s Office and Parker County Sheriff’s Posse, granted Chandler’s wish.

Chandler’s law enforcement dreams weren’t the beginning of his adventure, more like the middle.

The youngster was already set up to be a part of the grand entry of the Frontier Days Rodeo, have an introduction as a special guest during the event and meet Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler in person.

While the other “wishes” were great, Sheriff Fowler wanted to take Chandler’s dream to the next level. So, Friday morning, at the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse Grounds, Chandler officially took the oath of office to become an honorary Parker County Deputy Sheriff.

The little boy was also presented with a plaque signifying his oath of office, a patrol deputy uniform and a genuine deputy sheriff’s badge.

“Anytime we can help a child in a situation such as this, is an honor for us,” Sheriff Fowler said before the event. “We want him to feel special.”

Chandler’s cowboy dreams will also include being an ambassador to the North Texas region, attending the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas this December and going to the Professional Bull Rider’s World Finals Championship in Wyoming.
