Dogs' best friend is Steelers' QB

Fans in the Dawg Pound in Cleveland may not like Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, but the city's police dogs will.

Roethlisberger's foundation is donating an explosives detection dog, a training course and a canine protection vest to the Cleveland Division of Police's canine unit.

Roethlisberger, who grew up in Findlay, Ohio, learned that Cleveland's only explosives detecting canine, Rex, is 11 years old and nearing retirement. The department did not have money to purchase a new dog.

Roethlisberger's foundation will distribute grants to the police and fire departments in Pittsburgh and the surrounding area, and those of each Steelers' away opponents.
