The photo is truly heartwarming and certainly caught our attention.
The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office posted the photo on their Facebook page with the following caption:
“During times that there seems to be negative press towards law enforcement this shows a bit of compassion on the part of law enforcement and specifically our deputies. Sgt. Chris Howlett seen comforting a dog that had been struck by a vehicle. She was reunited with her owners who are monitoring her condition. She sustained minor injuries but is expected to be okay.”
We salute you Sgt. Howlett! What a kind and compassionate thing to do.
An update shows the dog’s owner has been found and the pooch – Rogue – is being evaluated by a veterinarian. She is said to be doing well and will hopefully be back home for Christmas.
Good news all around!
