In Milwaukee, a pet that lost his home when his family was evicted gets a second chance as a police dog.Dozer is a 1year-old Labrador retriever. His family was forced to surrender him to a shelter last month after losing their home.

Volunteers noticed his determined spirit and energy during play and searching for toys.

Dozer is now being trained for the police department's narcotics division to replace a retiring dog.
