Pit bull rescued from dogfighting ring is now a K-9 deputy

A pit bull that was saved from a dogfighting ring is now the newest member of law enforcement in North Carolina.

Meet Nibbles.

The adorable dog with the infectious smile has joined the crime-fighting team at the Craven County Sheriff’s Office. Nibbles was rescued in 2015 from a dogfighting ring in Canada by the Throw Away Dogs Project.

The organization rehabilitates dogs and turns them into protection officers for the community.

Congratulations, Nibbles!
