A US police dog in the central Idaho resort town of Sun Valley is back on duty after serving a "suspension" for an unprovoked attack on a small schnauzer.

Sun Valley Police Chief Cameron Daggett says the five-year-old German shepherd named Dax took a few weeks off the job after the incident.

The dog will receive more training to prevent a repeat of June 26 when authorities say Dax attacked a schnauzer named Max. Max's owner says the city is paying the $600 (£387) veterinarian bill.

Dax is a four-year veteran of the force. He is trained to find illegal drugs, missing people and evidence at crime scenes.
