A pit bull rescued from a dog fighting ring has a new job.

Dallas, a 3-year-old pit bull, was one of 30 dogs rescued from a dogfighting ring in Canada.

Twenty-one of the dogs were slated to be euthanized, but 18, including Dallas, were saved.

Dallas was sent to a rescue group and it seems he made quite the impression.

The organization picked him out to be trained as a police K-9.

Dallas will move to Virginia this weekend where he will be paired with a handler and complete his training.
