Dog Who Faced Death In Shelter Becomes Ohio’s First PitBull K9

CLAY TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A pit bull who faced death in a shelter is now Ohio’s first official pit bull police dog, according to WSYX.

From Union County Humane Society:

Leonard is a dog that came to us about 7 months ago. He exhibited very high hunt, ball, and possessiveness drives; none of which make adoption likely for a family. Our director, Jim Alloway, who has extensive background with police dogs, was quick to recognize that there was a perfect home out there for Leonard. We contacted Storm Dog K-9 Training and Mike Pennington (owner and operator) was intrigued. After initial testing, we all knew that Leonard would be an ideal candidate as a narcotics dog.

Leonard is now fully trained and will be certified next Tuesday in Ohio. He is with his new handler and Chief of Police in Clay Township Ohio, Terry Mitchell. The bond they share is already evident and pronounced. Leonard promises to make a great police dog as well as loving family companion. He already knows when his vest goes on – it’s time to work. He also may have found some favorite spots on the couch to relax.

We couldn’t be happier about this story and Leonard’s future.

Leonard is now fully trained and certified and working with Clay Township Police Chief Terry Mitchell.
