A few months ago, a stray pit bull wound up at an animal shelter in Marysville, Ohio.
The staff named him Leonard and they wanted to find him a home but he was too aggressive. So he was scheduled to be PUT DOWN.
But then, the director of the center realized Leonard wasn't just an out-of-control aggressive pit bull he just had a lot of energy that needed to be channeled.
So he contacted a police dog training center to see if they'd give him a shot.
They took in Leonard and they found they were quickly able to train him.
And now, he has a JOB at the police department in Clay Township, in western Ohio and he just started his new life in their K9 unit this weekend.
