File this under: sometimes the news cycle is uplifting and happy. The Columbus Division of Fire is giving shelter dogs a second chance. They’ve been adopting the dogs and training them to be part of their K-9 units (bomb and arson divisions). Normally, departments pay thousands of dollars to breeders for the dogs, but Columbus has been adopting since 2004; Richard Harding, Handler of Explosives K-9 Marley said, “I think it’s great. I would have never guessed in a million years, you take a pound puppy and turn him into a good working dog like we have.”  (deb)
