LARGO, Fla. - Is "In Dog We Trust" your motto?

If so, a sheriff's office in Florida has a rug for you. The Pinellas County sheriff's office said Thursday it will auction off a rug that had "In Dog We Trust" on it instead of "In God We Trust."

The forest green rug with the sheriff's gold badge was in the entrance area for a couple of months when the error was discovered Wednesday by a deputy.

Proceeds from the auction will go to a local animal rescue organization.

Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri says the rug will head to the auction block because the story garnered so much attention.

The rug was initially valued at $500 rug.

The date of the auction is not immediately clear.
