Anyone know anything else about this? It's sorta funny, but not at the same time. I ran across it on snopes after looking up something I received in an email..

BOSTON (AP) - This Prada's bag was no designer purse. A Boston detective searching the apartment of a drug suspect wound up wrestling a sack containing 108 bags of marijuana out of the clenched jaws of a pitbull named Prada.

The dog was running around carrying a tan-colored bag Tuesday as police were searching the apartment, where they had already found a loaded gun, $1,000 cash and 14 bags of marijuana.

Prada did not give up without a fight.

When an officer tried to grab Prada's bag, the pooch pulled back. The plastic tore, and police said could they could see bags of marijuana inside the sack in Prada's mouth.

"All 108 bags were recovered from the dog's mouth after a vigorous struggle," police said in a written statement.

Officers locked Prada in a dog crate. They also arrested three people at the apartment.

Any connection between Pit Bulls and drugs, or Pit Bulls and illegal guns, or Pit Bulls and criminal-owners is bad news for the breed image.

At least they didn't have to shoot the dog. Sounds like it wanted a game of tug.

That's pretty funny!

I can just see the dog prancing around with the purse, while they were searching, lol. Then having a blast playing tug with a perfect stranger.
Of course, on the sad note, the dog was probably put in a shelter, and obviously didn't have the best of owners. :rolleyes2:

I burst out laughing when I first read this because I can just see this happening :D .

I wonder what happened to that poor dog.
Never make someone a priority in your life when that someone treats you like an option.

Well if all went well hopefully the pup was dropped at the MSPCA shelter in Jamaica Plain (Boston) because they have a pretty high turnover rate, low euth rate, and place pits all the time!!
