GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) - Josephine County officials have rescued a yellow Labrador they believe was involved in a dog-fighting operation.

The Grants Pass Daily Courier reports (https://is.gd/H4DJ8Z ) that County Animal Protection Officer David Pitts found two men trying to force the Labrador into a pickup truck and believed the men were trying to gather dogs to be used for dog fighting.

Pitts says he saw two other dogs in the back of the truck, but the men drove off before he could stop them. They abandoned the yellow lab, Finley.

Pitts feared Finley would have been used as a bait dog. Such dogs are used to train fighting dogs and often have their snouts taped shut or their teeth filed down so they can’t fight back.

Finley has since been reunited with his family.
