Police in America have removed a rug from their office that read "In dog we trust".

The official motto of the United States is "In God we trust" - so someone got their spelling mixed up!

It's also the motto for the state of Florida, where the rug lay at the entrance to a sheriff's office for two months before the mistake was noticed.

The company that made the dodgy rug are now making a new one with the correct spelling on it.

There have been offers on social media from people who want to buy the old rug.

The error, made by the rug's makers, is being fixed

"I'd buy or donate to a charity to get one," wrote one user.

"I'm a great dog person and really find that a rug like that would be wonderful for my dogs to have for beds," wrote another.

The sheriff's office hasn't yet said whether they'll sell the old rug...
