The Polk County, Florida, lawman wanted a new drug dog, but his chief said they didn't have the budget.
So, Maney went to the pound, found and adopted a puppy, and trained it.
Maney has the experience.
He has worked with five K-9 cops before.
Maney said he passed on several dogs before finding a black lab mix he named Rezadu.
It took 12 weeks to train Rezadu.
The pup did so well, he's now a nationally certified narcotics dog.
