Dog Goes From Stray to Police "Chief Dog"

This is Julio, a dog that went from the streets of Lima, Peru, to becoming a "captain" at a police station.

This is the rags-to-riches story of a stray dog named Julio. Twelve years ago, he was roaming the streets of Lima, Peru, when a police officer called Carlos Iglesias rescued him and took him to his police station. Then without any K-9 training, the two went on to fight crime and last year Julio was promoted to captain.

Captain Julio is now retired but he's a beloved part of the community. A neighbor paid $1,000 for a bronze statue in his honor when Julio was promoted to captain. And we just love that his full name is Julio Iglesias.
