Neville the pit bull to retire from job as bomb sniffer for WSP
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'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."
"He's so sweet. I love it when you pet him and he just smashes up against you. You feel the love," said Diana Cameron, who works at the espresso stand on the dock.
Neville was the first pit bull on explosives patrol for the Washington State Patrol. And he's helped pave the way for four others to follow in his footsteps.
Neville will remain with Trooper Dixon after his retirement.
