LEE COUNTY, FL (WRDW/WAGT) -- A Florida dog that was found with its mouth taped shut has found a new leash -- yes, pun intended -- on life: as a K9 deputy.

Chance was found in late February in rough shape with his mouth taped shut and dehydrated.

But the Lee County Sheriff's Office in Florida knew they had a good dog on their hands. They up and decided to deputize the pup and he's just completely his basic training.

Now, the good dog is starting on his first days on the job.

"When asked to describe his first day on duty, Deputy Chance stated, 'ruff.'" a post on Facebook from the sheriff's office said.
