SEATTLE - He's got a reputation, but he's not living up to it. And that's a good thing. Neville the pit bull is working the ferry lines at Seattle's Coleman Dock.

He isn't supposed to be here. Neville was on death row in Canada until an escape worthy of a spy novel got him across the border and into the K-9 work force. Today he protects the people who almost failed him.

"He's the kind of dog who would take a bullet for you," said Neville's handler, Trooper David Dixon. "And there are people like me who had a bad idea of pit bulls in the past that may change their mind and love them because they're great."

What a great article. My favorite line is the last one in the article. "Neville will remain with Trooper Dixon after his retirement." That is awesome!!! :D

I have seen them at work as I wait for the Ferry every Thurs. on my way to work.....

His handler/owner Trooper Dixon is really a nice man, who loves his dog,,,he speaks of him as his "partner"...@ six months ago he said that he (Neville)would be going into retirement....After checking vehicles,,,,you'd see them to the side playing a game of tug. The two are a "love match"..

Trooper Dixon also made the comment "No more Pit Bulls for the WSP,,,to many complaints from the public @ using PB's :( ....He (the trooper) was so dissapointed that this decision was made,,as to quote him "I'd never own another breed after having Neville, they are the best dogs"....

I had not seen Nev in a couple of years (time flies...geeze) so these pics were a HUGE shock to me! But he is still so handsome and I am still so proud of him.

THAT IS PATHETIC

What a joke... I"m sure there have been racist complaints about black officers and native American officers, I wonder if they have stopped hiring them as well?
