A police dog donated by Ben Roethlisberger has been suspended for an unwanted assault on an underage girl while kicking back after work. But where would the dog learn such behavior?
The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation does great work, donating money to police departments to purchase, train and maintain K-9 units. That's a great cause, and Ben does good work. So let's get that out of the way.
But the fact that one of his donated dogs got fired for inappropriate behavior? When it rains, Ben, it pours.
Alleghany Township's Supervisors voted unanimously to retire Cezar, the German Shepherd, after he bit a 9-year-old at a "non-police event." You're off the force, kid! You're a loose cannon!
Cezar's not without his supporters. In a display of semantics reminiscent of the debate over the meaning of the word "rape,"
Residents who spoke in favor of keeping the dog on duty included Mabel Mazza, who questioned if the action should be considered a bite, since the youngster's skin wasn't penetrated.
This whole thing sounds like a very special episode of Poochinski.
