Dogs All the Time have always supported dog adoption. Instead of buying a new pup, why not help feel a rescued dog loved and pampered. That’s why we are overjoyed with the news that cops adopt rescued pit bulls and made them K9 dogs.
Meet Phantom and Sarah, two rescued pit bulls who just became K9 dogs. Knowing the bad reputation the breed has and the fact that pit buls are the #1 breed to be euthanized in the US, officers at North Carolina’s Clay County Sheriff’s Office took it upon themselves to change the situation.
“What will be the most shocking to some will not be that Clay County Sheriff’s has the new K-9 Deputies, but rather their breed,” the department wrote online, adding: “even though pit bulls get a bad rap in the media, they aren’t all bad dogs and can do great things for the communities they serve.”
Butt, turning shelter bully breeds with an uncertain future into officer dogs not only gives them a second chance at life – it also actually saves taxpayers money.
“The two foundations have taken on the mission to show that Departments do not need to spend $15-$20,000 for a purebred German shepherd or Belgian Malinois to search and find illegal drugs, at the same time giving dogs destined for a life in a shelter or euthanasia a second chance at life serving Law Enforcement Officers and Departments around the country.”
This is certainly a win-win situation for both dogs and taxpayers!
