Policeman Saw a Dog Hanging Outside of Truck. What They do Next Saves his Life.
The dog’s owner might have thought they were doing the right thing leaving their car window wide open while they went to shop. But that choice turned out to be almost fatal for their small dog. Police in Kansas came to the rescue of a dog hanging from his leash from the side of a pickup truck.
Sergeant Jason Legleiter and Police Officer Wade Hammond were at the Wal-Mart Store on North Summit in Arkansas City in response to a shoplifter on July 8, 2016. They had just secured the suspect in their patrol car, when a Wal-Mart worker rushed to tell them about the small dog hanging by his leash outside of a truck. The two officers quickly responded and saw that the dog “had essentially hung himself from the leash”.
I’m glad these two officers were in the right place at the right time to save the little dog. He looks so relieved and happy in the last photo.
People need to stop leaving their animals in vehicles and keeping them out of harms way. Leave them home where they will be safe. Thank God for these officers.
