BEND, Ore. (AP) — A police dog that was laid off from the Polk County sheriff's office due to budget cuts has found a new job with the Bend Police Department.
Ranger is a 2-year-old bloodhound.
KTVZ reports (http://is.gd/e5ZGD1) the sheriff's office gave Ranger to the police department at no cost.
Ranger joins two other dogs with the department. He'll live with Officer Kyle Voll, and they'll be trained in tracking missing people or fugitives and locating evidence.
