Florida- A rug has been removed from a sheriff's office in Florida after it was noticed that it read "in dog we trust" instead of "in God we trust".

The $500 (£329) mat lay at the entrance to the office in Pinellas County for two months before someone noticed, a spokeswoman said. The error was made by the rug's manufacturer and is being corrected. But there have been several offers to buy the misprinted rug on the office's Facebook page. "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 Pinellas County office is yet to respond to the offers. The rug was put away on Wednesday after a deputy spotted the mistake. "In God we trust" was adopted as the national motto of the US in 1956. It is also the official motto of Florida.
