A police officer in Texas rescued a dog who was stranded on the side of the highway, but that wasn’t enough heroics for one day. When no one claimed her after the three-day stray hold was up, Officer Rogers quickly jumped at the chance to add another member to the family.
The staff at the shelter noticed the instant connection between the two: “By the time they got here, she was clearly smitten and didn’t want to leave her handsome hero,”
“It feels really good,” he said. “If anybody was missing her, we were hoping that the coverage would’ve helped them to get reunited, but since nobody came forward, we’re hoping to be able to give her a good home.”
His family has three other dogs, and Rogers believes they will be a good match.
