NEW ROADS, La. (AP) -- The bad dog of the neighborhood has received a life prison sentence.

The wolf dog hybrid named Chief -- once ordered destroyed for aggressive behavior -- will become a guard dog at Louisiana's maximum security prison.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/JoUefp) that District Judge James Best on Tuesday signed an order turning over Chief to the state prison system, which plans to put the dog to work at the Louisiana State Penitentiary.

Best had ordered euthanasia for Chief last month after his neighbors in Pointe Coupee Parish testified that the dog would frequently escape from his owners' property and terrorize them.

Deputy Warden Bruce Dodd said prison officials read about the dog and decided he could have a productive life guarding the perimeter of the 18,000-acre prison farm at Angola.
