After finishing up a routine traffic operation, some Brazilian police officers returned to their patrol car and were shocked to find a dog in the driver’s seat.
The officers tried to coax the dog out of the car, but he refused to leave. The little dog began to cry and became anxious. He whined and begged for help.
“He cried a lot. [He] appeared to have been abandoned on the side of the highway,” wrote Polícia Militar Rodoviária de Santa Catarin.
It was clear that the dog was looking for someone to help him and knew just where to go for some assistance. He decided to jump into the patrol car and waited for the officers’ return.
The kind officers were stunned and moved by this dog’s plea for help, so they decided to take him back to the station and try to help him find a home. On the way to the station, the dog wagged his tail and happily accepted the sweet pats from the officers.
Thankfully, after hearing the heartbreaking story, Corporal Maurício decided to adopt the little dog and called him Rex.
“[He] decided to adopt him, which made his children happy,” the officials said. “His name is Rex!”
The police department was happy to share the rescue story on their Facebook page, where it went viral and gained a lot of comments of praise.
The dog was thrilled to have a new home and great owners.
“Congratulations on everyone’s attitude, to the two cops who had a good heart to remove him from the highway and to the other cop “Maurício” for adopting Rex,” commented one follower.
We are happy to know that now Rex is a happy and healthy dog who is loved and cared by his beloved owners. Thank you to everyone involved in his rescue.
