When you read a narrative about police officers trying to find runaways who have escaped, it doesn’t normally have a very endearing tone to it. But the story of cops from one police department who had to pick up six puppies following a “jailbreak” is warming hearts all over the internet right now.
According to a post that was made on Facebook by the Marietta, Georgia Police Department, six puppies managed to break free from a fenced-in area and make their way to the highway before their owners recognized what had happened.
Thankfully, law enforcement personnel arrived on the scene quickly to track down the escaped puppies and bring them to a secure location. The cops were given the tongue-in-cheek moniker of the “PAW Patrol” by the department, with the acronym “PAW” standing for “Puppies Aimlessly Wandering.”
Officer Covino, who was referred to as the “senior puppy whisperer” by the Metropolitan Police Department, was in charge of the team. According to the information provided in the post, all six of the “escapees” were successfully located and brought back to their respective human families.
They wrote, “You can’t make up this stuff,” and they meant it.
Although it was a humorous and uplifting tale, the agency also encouraged dog owners to ensure that their fences are “escape resistant” and to provide collars with identification tags for their pets if they become lost.
The story quickly gained traction on the internet, where it received a lot of positive feedback from readers and praise from other police agencies that wanted to launch their own “PAW Patrol.”
One woman expressed her confusion on Facebook by writing, “I don’t know who’s cuter the paw patrol or the puppies!” “Thank you so much for everything you do!”
I’d want to express my gratitude to these cops for rescuing all six of the puppies and bringing them to a secure location. Please pass along this heartwarming tale!
