If you’ve ever found an abandoned dog on the side of the road, you know how heartbreaking it is. They’re scared, alone, and often severely neglected. It’s even worse when it’s abandoned puppies. And that’s just what a police dog and his handler found one day.
Trooper Jordan Ennis and his K-9 sidekick Officer Tek of the Georgia State Patrol were out patrolling one day in Southwest Atlanta, Georgia. It was as normal as any other day until they spotted something on the side of the rode.
There, standing side-by-side were three young, tiny puppies.
The three pups looked terrified and were cowering from the troopers under a bush. After an initial search, it became clear that the puppies had been abandoned.
The dup decided to act. They loaded the puppies into the car and headed back to the station.
Tek stayed beside them the entire car right home.
It’s safe to say Tek knew what he was doing. He offered some much-needed comfort for the scared trio during their ride back to the station.
Though it’s still unknown who abandoned the adorable puppies, they are well on their way to living a better life.
“Ennis knew no one was coming for them, so he and his K-9, Tek, brought the puppies to Headquarters where they were all promptly adopted,” a statement by the Georgia Department of Public Saftey said.
They went on to say, “A Trooper never knows what he may encounter on a shift, but a day with puppies, is a good day.”
Thankfully Tek and Ennis spotted the puppies when they did – who knows what would have happened to them had they not been found!
While these puppies were abandoned, some dogs found on the side of the road are actually lost. To avoid something like this happening to your furry friend, make sure they have the Nuzzle collar. With GPS technology, you’ll know where your pup is at all times. Learn more about Nuzzle here.
