LARGO, Fla. – Is “In Dog We Trust” your motto?
If so, a sheriff’s office in Florida has a rug for you. The Pinellas County sheriff’s office said Thursday it will auction off a rug that had “In Dog We Trust” on it instead of “In God We Trust.”
The forest green rug with the sheriff’s gold badge was in the entrance area for a couple of months when the error was discovered Wednesday by a deputy.
Proceeds from the auction will go to a local animal rescue organization.
