Posted: Updated:

GULFPORT, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Fred the K-9 police dog, fired from his job with the city of Gulfport, may find new employment with the Harrison County Sheriff's Office.

Gulfport police decided Fred was too distracted while on the job to be effective and will be returned to the school that trained him.

Roger Abshire, owner of US K-9 Unlimited in Kaplan, La., says he expects Fred's career to continue.

Maj. Tony Sauro of the Harrison County Sheriff's Office says the department hopes to bring the 3-year-old Belgian Malinois onto the force.
