Times are really tough for dogs

JEANNETTE, Pa. (AP) - September 30, 2010

How tough?

Well, even the police dog has been laid off in one western Pennsylvania city.

The Jeannette City Council has voted to eliminate the jobs of nine city workers, including three of the city's 12 police officers.

One of those officers handles the city's drug-sniffing dog, Wando.

Officials say some of the laid off workers could be called back if finances improve.
