Police officers are hard-working and well-respected public servants. The publicâ€™s safety and their call of duty is always the priority for them. During an early morning patrol, one cop encountered a very unusual case.Â Â
Police officerÂ Hammell, a Deputy with the Tuolumne County Sheriffâ€™s Office in California, came across a lost pup while on duty. He was on a lookout for a strange vehicle at that time when the dog happened to find him.Â
Police Officer Finds Dog Inside His Car
Ruger, a black Labrador found his way to the comforts ofÂ Hammellâ€™s patrol car. Since the carâ€™s engine was kept running, the dog found refuge in its warm comfort. He was able to go inside because the passengerâ€™s door was left open.Â
WhenÂ Hammell returned to his car after investigating the area, he was surprised to find that his car has been made as a sanctuary by a stray pup. He checked out the information on the dogâ€™s collar and found out that the dogâ€™s name was Ruger. Written there as well was the name of his owner.Â
Dog Reunited With Owners After Ride In Cop Car
When he checked the pupÂ ownerâ€™s address with the dispatchers, he discovered that the pup was away from his home. The pup whoÂ came insideÂ his car without permission was lost after all. Due to his sense of duty, he decided to bring Ruger back home.Â
Having a helpless dog wander in theÂ chilly,Â winter morning was not an option for him. And besides, it looks like the dog knew that he was someone who can help him. While on their way home, the policeâ€™s new-found mate fell asleep on the passengerâ€™sÂ seatÂ
The dogâ€™s family was relieved when officerÂ HammellÂ arrived with the dog. They have been searching for him all night because the dog did not come back after strolling their neighborhood at night. It was such a stroke of luck that Ruger came across an officer.Â
A message of gratefulness from Rugerâ€™s owner was also posted on the Facebook page of Tuolumne County Sheriff.Â
