He was deemed unadoptable but one Ohio police department is finding a place for him.

Leonard has a strong will and a high "ball drive" and the director of the Union County Humane Society thought he might be a perfect fit for law enforcement. 

Chief Terry Mitchell of the Clay Township Police Department agreed, according to 13abc in Toledo.

"He's a single purpose dog and his purpose is just finding narcotics," Chief Mitchell told 13abc.

And Leonard is a unique police dog. He's the first pit bull K9 in the state.
