Getting lost is a terrifying experience for anyone because great is the insecurity of not knowing if you will ever see your loved ones again.
This is quite common with vulnerable beings, such as children or the elderly, who somehow see their sense of location diminished. But there are other beings, such as dogs, who also frequently experience these bitter episodes.
So it happened with the dog in this story.
After dealing with a public disorder situation in a neighborhood near the Lee County Sheriff’s Office in Florida (United States), officers Soto and Rose were walking toward patrol when they made a strange discovery.
A frightened pit bull was waiting for them at the car door, standing on both legs. The matter seemed strange, but it did not intimidate the police.
It was clear that this little friend needed help.
The puppy didn’t want any trouble, on the contrary, he needed to be taken out of a rather large conflict: he was lost. Not knowing how to get home, the puppy saw the police car and seems to have understood that this was his only hope.
The matter seemed rather peculiar and the officers investigated the area in case the dog’s owner was around, but a neighbor said that the dog had been wandering alone for more than 15 minutes.
The poor man was lost and scared.
This little fellow turned out to be very sweet and as soon as the uniformed men approached, he started jumping up and down and licking their hands. He seemed very happy at their arrival, so Soto and Rose thought that for some strange reason the dog understood perfectly well that they were going to help him.
We don’t know if he recognized the police patrol, but no doubt the animal did the right thing by waiting there. At that moment, Rose realized that behind his badge there was something written, it was his name and an address.
The dog’s name was Hank.
Incredibly, the dog’s decision saved him from a needy fate on the streets. Rose and Soto put him on patrol and began driving to the home of the dog’s supposed owners. Sure enough, that was his address, and Hank’s parents were very excited to see him returned safely.
We are happy with happy endings, but we are also amazed at the intelligence of this dog.
